Minimum charge for being seated at a restaurant?
Over the weekend, I wanted to take my mom for dessert at Serendipity in Georgetown. The sundaes there are absurd and I though she would get a kick out of it. When I told the host we were there for dessert and coffee he pointed to a new sign that each customer must spend $10 there. I asked if this was just for card charges or split checks and was informed, nope, each customer must spend $10. Period. Is this within city regulation? I though only licensed nightclubs could charge a cover or require a certain purchase minimum.
