If you have to ask you can’t afford it
I would not eat there.
Does the chef set the prices there?
Many years ago, my family took a trip to Disneyland, where we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel. In an attempt to inculcate a bit of what passes for ‘sophistication’, in America, I made reservations at a nearby “fancy” restaurant. (My younger son must have been 8 or 9 at the time). After the hostess seated us, she presented us with menus. After perusing his for a minute or two, he leaned over and whispered that the menus were obviously “broken”, which was, in and of itself, “cute”!
I leaned over toward him and asked him to explain. He proceeded to inform me that they MUST be broken because there were no prices listed! I then had to explain to my younger son that there were entire classes of businesses that operate on the theory that, if you ask how “much” something is – then you can’t afford what they have to offer! I believe he was “flabbergasted” at the concept.
My older son also wasn’t happy with the concept – he’d always just ordered the most expensive item on the menu and, at this restaurant, that wasn’t possible! I believe the experience was “broadening” for both sons.
