  1. Am I living in bizarro world where $78 cocktails are considered a steal?

    In reference to: 8 of 12 (The Spare Room)
    "Think $78 cocktails, $5 falafel and $3 beers."

  3. Cheap by whose standards? The 99 cent tacos sound fine, but I wouldn't be calling some of those other choices bargains by any means.

    1. Bargain is relative here, yes. A $42 meal at Osteria Mozza with a cheese course, pasta, dessert and glass of wine is a steal. That would normally be at least $60+. So it's not necessarily "cheap" food, but more overall deals. If you have some great deals to contribute, we'd love to hear them!

  5. Flabbergasted because it's popular? Dominick's does have a great brunch on the weekends, but this was about deals. The $15 dinners at all of those spots are great. I think the wine is a bigger steal!
