With consumers pinching dollars — and sometimes pennies — high-end restaurants are changing their menus to offer cheaper options.
One of them, Neo at the Mansion on Peachtree, has traded in pricey Italian food for cheaper farm fare, writes AJC reporter Jennifer Brett. “Arrivederci, gnocchi di fontina. Howdy, succotash,” Brett says.
Other fine dining establishments also are offering deals. For example, Brett writes, Park 75 at the Four Seasons hotel is offering $25 to-go-meals on Friday nights and Dogwood is serving a $25 three-course meal.
UGA economist Jeff Humphreys predicts the bargains are here to stay for awhile, given the economy.
