Ordering your whiskey “on the rocks” instead of “neat” triggers an undisclosed $3 surcharge here. Asked about the disconnect between our bill’s $21 per drink and the $18 shown on the drinks list, our server told us it’s “restaurant policy” to tack on an extra $3 if you order your drink with ice.
Note to restaurant: a better practice would be to disclose the extra charge on the drinks list, or (better still) eliminate this nickel-and-diming altogether. This was our fourth visit to 15 East in recent months – the restaurant’s interior is stunning and we enjoy the cuisine – but the experience left us with a bad feeling, even though our server did remove the surcharge when we balked.
Note to airline industry: why not consider a beverage-cart “ice supplement” as the next logical step in the passenger-convenience à-la-carte pricing model?
