7 Ways That Menus Make You Spend More Money

The headline:  Tricks of the Restaurant Trade: 7 Ways Menus Make You Spend

The summary:  A recent CIA graduate highlights some of the ways that restaurants structure their menus to get you to buy what they want you to.

The reaction:  This isn’t really a news item but darned if it isn’t a fascinating read.

This guy covers everything from where items are placed on the menu, what order they’re listed in, why dollar signs are often removed and how “specials” aren’t really so special.  This will certainly make me think twice the next time I hit a restaurant!
