Blog: Preposterous pricing

Catherine Sleep | 19 October 2006

Zagat has just published its annual survey listing the top ten most expensive restaurants in the US. There’s something preposterous about the prices mentioned. The most expensive of all is Masa, the Manhattan sushi restaurant which charges US$400 for a prix fixe menu (no drinks). Come on, sushi? They don’t even cook it.

Masa was already in the top spot last year, but it made sure it maintained pole position by hiking its prix fixe price a further $50. Well, they wouldn’t want to look cheap, would they?

Silly prices, paid by silly people
