Whether they're good-willed enticements or uninspired marketing ploys, one clear sign we're heading into a recession (if we're not already in one) is when high-end restaurants take a cue from hot-dog chain Gray's Papaya and launch "recession specials." First victim: Los Angeles's Table 8, which today announced "Recession Concessions," a $38 3-course tasting menu (which includes kobe beef carpaccio and a rib-eye), and the "Inflation Libation" (which sounds like a drink Dr. Seuss would have)—a choice of wine or beer and two lounge-menu items for $20.
