On paper, that is the logical response, but in practice that doesn’t always work. A brilliant summary of pricing that I have seen is a high end place picks their ingredients and charges what they need based on it. For most other places, they pick the dish they want to serve and the price then figure out what quality Read more

No, the third-party delivery apps need to raise their prices to consumers. The restaurant is doing 95% of the labor already, on a razor-thin margin, during a pandemic (or not!). They shouldn’t also have to juggle multiple pricing schemes for in-person dining, takeout, and third-party delivery. Which they’d have to do, Read more

No one called him an asshole, dude... taking a WILD guess at your gender here, because you’ve missed the point so broadly.

every article like this that comes about reminds me of the bit in the simpsons where it’s revealed that mr burns is only alive bc all of the various diseases in his body are all acting in perfect counter-balance to each other and prevent any one ailment from taking over completely. there are simply too many things Read more
