The most overpriced items on the menu, according to chefs
Geege Schuman stashed this in Personal Finance
LOL I think this list is the whole menu of many SF restaurants these days...
They do it so they can afford the SF rents.
But agreed that these are ripoffs: Kobe beef, spicy tuna roll, fried calamari, lobster mac and cheese, oysters, truffle anything, any chicken dish over $25, any expensive wine or champagne...
And Well liquor:
Unless you’re knocking back $1 liquor pitchers at one of the best college bars in America, paying $8 for hangover-grade tequila is just an investment in a miserable next morning. One restaurant owner admitted that the markup is considerably higher on well drinks, while the quality is drastically lower. You're better off throwing down the extra dollar or two for a brand that purifies its booze.
