Just an idea. What would happen if all of us who have ADRs and are planning to cancel wait until 24 hours before.

That may get the message when they have a lot of empty tables that were canceled with less time to fill it...

Who is gonna walk in and pay $30-40 a person for LUNCH?!?! I don't even want to pay that for dinner! You could feed your family of 4 for a week for that kind of $$. I think this is a huge mistake. And lunch will be back next year. I hope!

But, would walk-ins want to pay that kind of $$ for lunch? I think one look at the menu and the prices for lunch might change that...

We ate there Friday, and I can say I don't know that we'll be back. The soup and bread were good, the creme brûlée was good, but the entrees were just okay at best. My filet was dry, and dh's was undercooked. He sent it back, and it came out almost burned to a crisp (ordered med). It was over $200 for lunch for 2 adults and 2 children. Way overpriced for what we got.

On the other hand, we found our new LC last night at The Wave! I had pretzel bread as my app, an amazing filet for my entree, and the dessert trios were outstanding. Two thumbs up for it! We will be back without a doubt.

I imagine $200 for lunch for a family of 4 would scare many off. Unless on the free DDP...

I'm pretty sure Tutto is still only 1TS credit, so there is a big difference. Even OOP, if you wanted the most expensive lunch entree there, it's still only $28. They also still offer 2 different menus so that you can save a few bucks at lunch.

LC is small..I think they are trying to lessen demand.
I am sure much studying has brought them to this decision..

If their intention is to reduce demand I think this experiment will be a smashing success.
