It’s been years since I learned an important restaurant lesson—one I will not need to learn again. Let’s call this a lesson to last a lifetime.
I should have known better. Of all people, I should not have trusted a menu without prices on it. But for some reason, it just didn’t cross my mind that I needed to.
Friends had called asking if we’d like to join them for dinner. It was spontaneous so they looked to me, their fearless cheapskate, to come up with just the right choice in restaurants.
