I was just reading something about Jiko and remembered our first and only Jiko experience this past January.
Beautiful place, kind of an awkward location for their uncomfortable bar, the food was great.
We were greeted by our server and asked “would you like some water?” “Yes”, we did.
He returned with a bottle of water. We thought nothing of it, this is how it is served in quite a few restaurants that we frequent at home. The difference is, at Jiko we were charged quite a bit of money for it. I think it was something like $ 5. Of course we didn’t catch on to that until the check came.
I actually have no problem buying bottled water but I would like to have a choice of bottled or by the glass rather than being sold something in this rather underhanded way.
Has this happened to you? It never occurred to me to ask :blink:
