  1. Some of these restaurants need to get a grip on reality as it relates to these prices and their offerings during this pandemic. Talk about out of touch! I understand that Bacchanalia is “fine dining” , but that sampler looks like something I just ordered from my favorite Thai restaurant based on the to-go packaging. Please explain the $100 price tag for a to go meal, verses that same product inside of the restaurant. How much value is the service, the presentation, the ambiance, the everything that’s rolled into that price point when dining inside. God knows the cost to create it can’t be the full price of the meal.

    Many people would never step foot into Bacchanalia, but what a great time to create a special offering in the $40-50 price point, in the name of customer acquisition and brand introduction. I’m not suggesting a 2 for $20 meal, but taking 2-3 items from your sampler, making it a limited time offer at a lower price point might just create enough interest for someone to give it a try. If they like it, they are more likely to return.

    Most customers that have experienced this product in house, are less likely to try the to-go version, since they already know how the meal should be presented. Just a idea.

    1. Totally agree.
      For us the dining-out experience is so much more than just the food.
      But hey, if they can’t sell $100 tasting menus to go, maybe they’ll pivot to something a little more affordable/attainable.
      Not sure how the 1% thinks, maybe they don’t care.
      Do the richie-riches actually get this to-go and then nuke it to warm it up when they get home?
