Meanwhile on the Bruniblog

The Brunz gets on the blog today to remind us all that waiters like to trick us into spending more money by highlighting the most expensive items on a menu, an amateurish yet common move: "I think his unbidden guidance represents a sort of up-selling that isn’t as quickly noticed as the aggressive promotion of specialty cocktails...the belligerent hawking of Brussels sprouts and whipped potatoes, the evangelism for dessert. And I think diners should watch out for it." Consider yourselves warned. [Diner's Journal]
