Couple left with huge bill at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant after misreading menu
Jeffrey Paige and his girlfriend decided to treat themselves to a meal at Gordon Ramsay Steakhouse in Atlantic City last September, but ended up with a massive $ 614 (Â£ 441) bill after they misinterpreted what the menu said.
He thought he was getting an A5 triple pan-seared Japanese steak – more commonly known as Kobe – for $ 35, but he was actually getting it for $ 35 an ounce.
It is a serious mistake to make.
Despite this, he says he has no regrets as it was absolutely delicious.
He had left with the specific intention of having Wagyu beef, but when he spotted what he thought was an incredible deal for Kobe steak, he opted for it instead.
“It was like nothing else you will ever have. Melt in your mouth delicious. We also ordered a few sides, appetizers, and my girlfriend ate the famous Chef’s Beef Wellington. Ramsay for the very first time.
“Overall an amazing meal and we were happy to have been able to support the restaurant and its staff during these difficult times.”
His girlfriend Paige added, âAnd I still couldn’t believe Kobe was cheaper than Wagyu!
When the bill came in, they were shocked. They went back to check the menu, that’s when they realized their mistake.
$ 35 an ounce, not $ 35 for four ounces.
Posting the story originally on Reddit, Jeffrey joked, âI wish Chef Ramsay was here to go out and call me a donut for screwing this up lol,
“I really liked it. No regrets baby!
âMy family and I are huge fans of Gordon Ramsay, we watch his shows – Hell’s Kitchen, Masterchef – and I’ve been to his restaurants before and loved everything we’ve had,
“The steak and the experience were unforgettable, and if I had to goof this at any restaurant in the world, I’m glad it was Chef Ramsay’s.”
That’s sweet, at least he’s not bitter about it. After all, he did manage to enjoy an incredible meal, which he must have thought was a great deal at the time, too.
The Gordon Ramsay Steakhouse is located in Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, one of the largest gambling towns in all of the United States.
Jeffrey may have lost his money, but he won in the end anyway.
