If you’re going out to dinner this weekend…DO NOT read this…LOL
4 Behind-the-Scenes Restaurant Secrets.
1. Your food probably contains the chef's saliva. He uses a spoon to sample the food and might not worry about double dipping.
2. You're drinking someone else's wine. When people order bottles of wine and don't finish them, restaurants sometimes serve that wine in individual glasses the next day.
3. Restaurants want you to order pizza and the specials. Pizza is the cheapest thing to make and has the highest mark-up. Specials are really just foods the restaurant really wants to get rid of.
4. Don't get the second-cheapest bottle of wine. Restaurants know you will order the second-cheapest bottle of wine, because you don't want to order the cheapest one. So the second-cheapest one has the biggest price mark-up.
I’m just the messenger….LOL!!
The only one that really makes you wince is number 1…or do any of the other ones really bother you? Any other“secrets”we need to know?
