It is a nice place, and, given that it's on the Upper East Side in the Forties, very reasonable. You can't go to a white tablecloth restaurant and expect to have a meal and a couple of drinks for less than $40.00.
I'm going to Le Midi today for brunch (it's down on 13th Street near Union Square), if I can stop at two Bloody Marys, I should be okay with $30.00 including the tip.
BTW: the movie group I've been going out with uses an interesting method for dividing up a bill. Each person takes their total untaxed amount and multiples it by .27 , adds that amount to the untaxed amount to get their total share amount. (tax here is 8.875%). Makes it very easy, although it wouldn't have worked for the Meet-up group two nights ago. Who could tell how much pizza to charge yourself?
