Over the weekend, a reader posted about the new restaurant in town, Fatty Crab.
While the owner told NewsofStJohn.com the place would be casual and not upscale, our reader, Pete, found fault after looking over Fatty's menu on the restaurant's web site.
"The prices are not in line with the (pre-opening) comments," he said. "$42 for a sirloin steak. $17 for a chicken satay appetizer. $10 for a side of pickles, of all things. Yikes."
So, the Inquiring Iguana did a little foraging around the web. His survey focused on the entrees of three eateries. Surprise, surprise! Fatty's the least expensive.
The average price of Fatty's six "Specialities" is $28.83. Asolare's sample menu featured five main courses, with an average price of $$35. While Zozo's Ristorante is clearly the high-priced place. Its Pesce e Carne offerings averaging $37.17.
