I know, I know, lots of rich people who like to eat live in Manhattan, but even if I had a billion dollars …
Because there’s a lot going on here, the competition for attention is very fierce. So you have to do something really ridiculous to get noticed.
worked for me when I first met my wife.
You should’ve seen the stupid hat H was wearing on the day we met.
Well, all 5 burroughs make up NYC, and I don’t think that would fly in some of them.
More importantly, why do I not have national french fry day in my calendar.
Very true. I also don’t think restaurants that pull these stunts sell many of these “specials”, and probably don’t expect to.
In my house, everyday is national french fry day!
Agree. It’s about getting media coverage and the resulting interest of customers who will come in to order something else. See also:
Norma’s is closed, now, so you’ll have to get your crazy expensive omelet fix somewhere else.
I’d argue that Serendipity is kept alive by tourists, not folks who live in Manhattan.
Upper East Side lol
Just don’t try to charge $1.25 for extra ketsup downtown!
So you’re saying that the frozen hot chocolate I get once a decade is not keeping them afloat?
Actually, it is not a bad way to make a contrasting point. Fries are one of the cheapest food. We (the restaurant) will make a very expensive snack.

I feel so little after knowing about the $2000 omelet.
I meant I feel small
Like you feel as if you’re a diminished size, or you don’t feel much of anything?
Nor will that one frozen hot chocolate I got when I took visiting friends there twenty years ago.
Remember the movie? They probably got a nice bump after that.
This one. I should have said “small”. Let me edit it.
How much? ETA - right, $200
Yeah, throwing every truffle product on something is a good way to boost price (and kill flavor - half the “truffle” things these days taste just awful).
There was a movie?
