Man orders what he thought was a $37.50 bottle of wine — then the check arrived
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A New Jersey man who thought he ordered a $37.50 bottle of wine was in for a big shock when he got the bill.
NJ.com reported that Joe Lentini was attending a business dinner at Bobby Flay Steak at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa when he was asked by the host to pick a bottle of wine for the table.
Lentini said he asked for the waitress to make a recommendation. She reportedly suggested a bottle of wine and told Lentini the cost was “thirty-seven fifty.”
When dinner was over, the check was handed to the host with a total of $4,700.61. The bottle of wine was included at a cost of $3,750.
Management told Lentini the best they could do was reduce the price to $2,200.
Lentini and two other diners split the bill.
