Mid-range meal for three. Is it worth it?
Jan 23 2021
My attorney in New Delhi told me he paid 1,000 INR in a mid-range restaurant last Saturday for his family of three. I said wow that sounds like an expensive place. Was it nice? He said it was proper. I asked, what do you mean proper? Was it fancy? He said no, then reminded me of the currency exchange. We laughed, and then he asked me where I ate, knowing that Bella was in town for the weekend. I grimaced for a nano-second, then told him we went to a mid-range eatery Manhattan and the bill was $154.68 for three adults and a 6 year old. He said his meal was $15.00 with the tip! I suddenly felt a sharp pain in my wallet. I had to ask. So this was really not a mid-range restaurant, right? You went to a chain, or a buffet? Nope. He said. We had a 3 course meal.
