How much would you pay for a steak? $50? 100? How about $275? And if that “Tomahawk” steak isn’t enough, you can get one for a whopping $1000.00. Yep, you read that right – one thousand dollars. Then again it is covered in edible gold.
Nusr-Et Steakhouse sells just such a steak. Owned by world-renowned chef, Salt Bae, this Miami restaurant is the place to see and be seen. Diners expect their meal to cost $$$$.
Along comes a Florida man, and his five friends, who according to published reports in the Miami Herald, The Take-Out, and other media, ordered a regular Tomahawk, but instead received the “Golden Tomahawk.” In fact, there were two “golden” steaks and a “golden” rack of lamb.
What happens after that is worthy of a TV Show. The diner and his friends claim they didn’t order the gold-covered steak and didn’t notice any difference until the check came. They refused to pay for the higher-priced beef.
The cops were called, and after an hour or so, the group of six paid the check for more than $5,000. They refused to leave a tip. Later they posted a seething “review” on Yelp.
Supposedly, the angry diner took the bone home and plans to have a lab check to see if it’s really gold.
What would you have done?
