Subject: Price Jacking at Fiamma
...you have to write about Fiamma. The fact that the New Yorker has blown the roof off this place.... It deserves to be Deathwatched.
First the Menu started with more than 20 items on it...for the price of $75.00, 3 courses. I dined there and had a good time in the beginning. But now I went back to dine again!!!! Oh what a surprise with only 12 items on the a la carte menu? 4 apps, 4 pastas (dry spaghetti and risotto being 2 of the choices), 4 entrees and they are charging $95.00 for 3 courses (two of those items are baby chicken and skate(!!!!) two of the cheapest things that you can buy for a restaurant of this quality). This is the most blatant jacking up of prices after a review by Frank Bruni that there has ever been. You can't let this go.. for the integrity of Eater and your readers this is total B.S. Steve Hanson and BR guest should be a shamed of themselves...Highway robbery......Concerned Citizen of NYC food community.
