Tapas Adela's drink menu puzzles me
In the past, we've talked about whether it's kosher or not for a bar to list cocktail prices.
My stance has always been, put the drink prices on the drink menu.
Saturday night, Amie, some friends and I went to Tapas Adela, the semi-new small plates spot in Fells Point run by the Mezze/Meli/Kali's Court conglomerate.
The meal was just fine, and the wine list had some enticing options. But the cocktail menu made me scratch my head.
It listed drink prices for glasses of wine, as well as tequilas and a few other drinks.
But it didn't list prices for certain cocktails or martinis.
About half the drinks had prices, and half did not ...
If you're going to list prices, list all the prices or don't list any. Defecate or abdicate, if you will. None of this halfway stuff -- it's just annoying. Then you have to ask the server how much it costs, and sometimes the server has to ask the bar manager and check back with you, yadda yadda yadda.
I can't think of any other Baltimore restaurants or bars where I've seen this. Can you?
