A client of one of the restaurants Gordon Ramsay said he “had not read the menu carefully” and that he had been struck with an exorbitant bill at the end of his meal – even if he thought he commanded that the steak was only £ 26 ($ 35).
Jeffrey Paige had booked a table at Gordon Ramsay Steak, located at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City Hotel and Casino – where he was visiting with his girlfriend.
Planning to give it all away (what’s the use of the holidays, eh?), Jeffrey was surprised to see that a triple pan-fried Japanese A5 was on the menu. But he was even more shocked (and delighted) to see that the price was £ 26 for 4 ounces.
When Jeffrey brought up Bill it became apparent that the steak was in fact going to cost him $ 420 (£ 315) with the entire Bill coming in at $ 614 (£ 462).
Take from Reddit, Jeffrey said, “I thought I would splurge and get Wagyu beef. Well, they had a real Japanese A5 Kobe deal on the menu – and it was cheaper than the American Wagyu!
“The Kobe was only $ 35 for 4 ounces instead of $ 80 for 8 ounces of Wagyu. So I’m a big guy, I’m hungry, so I order 12 ounces of Kobe.”
He continued, “The steak was amazing. I’m in my 40s and I’ve only had Wagyu before in my life, just twice. I’ve never had a real Kobe deal. It was like nothing else. that you will never have.Melt in your delicious mouth.
“We also ordered a few sides, appetizers, and my girlfriend ate Chef Ramsay’s famous Beef Wellington for the first time. Overall it was an amazing meal and we were happy to have it. being able to support the restaurant and its staff during these trying times. And I still couldn’t believe that Kobe was cheaper than Wagyu!
“At least that’s what I thought. I had to reread the menu when the bill arrived because for 2 people the bill was over $ 600.00 !!!
“It turns out the Japanese A5 was $ 35 per ounce with a minimum purchase size of 4 oz, not $ 35 for 4 oz. “
He then added, “I wish Chef Ramsay was here to call me a donut for f ****** that lol.”
Outrageously expensive restaurant bills seem like a thing of normalcy right now … well, ever since London’s Salt Bae restaurant opened a few months ago!
The infamous steakhouse drew a lot of attention when diners at the Knightsbridge Goof shared a photo of their £ 37,000 receipt on Snapchat. Yes, you read that right. £ 37,000.
Well, as it always does, it seemed like the alcohol that drove the price up jaw-droppingly.
Not content with a few glasses of house red and a bottle of Blue Nun, this lot was purchased for a 1996 bottle of Petrus, which cost them £ 9,100, and a few other bottles of 2003 Petrus, which cost a grand total of £ 19,900.
Not to mention the gold encrusted tomahawk steak that set the table down for £ 850 ($ 1,127).
