Milan now takes Euros
What a strange little saga this has been.
As of Wednesday night, Milan, the upscale Italian restaurant/lounge in Little Italy, now accepts Euros as a form of payment.
According to management, the computer system will be updated daily to calculate the proper exchange rate from Euros to dollars.
As a result, the U.S. dollar prices listed on the menu will remain the same, but the Euro prices may fluctuate some with the market. ...
I could be wrong here, but I believe this makes Milan the only restaurant in town that officially accepts Euros and dollars.
I was critical of Milan's decision to list prices in Euros and dollars, and I stand by what I wrote. However, I've got to give some credit where credit is due. It's clear Milan's management listened to their customer base and adapted their business plan to better cater to them. That's a good sign.
I'll bet there are a bunch of people with Euros left over from vacations who wouldn't mind spending them on some fancy food and drinks. Well, folks, here's your chance.
