Ago-a-Go-Go: Price Jacking

New, 4 comments

2008_04_ago.jpgAn early review at Ago reveals someone's having fun with adding 'Market Price' items to the menu: "Last week, the menu offered a rib-eye steak grilled on the wood-burning oven, for $34. Yesterday, it appeared on the menu as 'M.P.' (possibly now a t-bone) and I ordered it without asking the price, which turned out to be a stunning $54—a rather dramatic increase, wouldn’t you say? Given that the menu is just a loose sheet of paper that is clearly being frequently reprinted, why can’t the price of this item be included?...it was a wonderful hunk of meat..But was it worth $54, given that Wolfgang’s offers more-or-less comparable quality for $15 less, just two blocks away?"
