Has anyone been to Masa?

  • f

I read with great disappointment the reviews on Bar Masa. I was thinking of trying it out but now I think not. If Bar Masa is not worth the $$ I wonder what that portends for Masa (which I believe runs from $300-500/pp)? Has anyone gone?

      Depending on what is being served price is now up to $400-$600 pp, plus drinks, plus tax, and they add on a mandatory 20% tip. The food is pretty good, but give me a break. It's a restaurant for people who don't give a second thought about dropping $2,000 on a meal for two. If that's you, congratulations, but I think it's why the place was basically empty the Friday night I recently went. To the mere mortals among us, it's a case of the emperor has no clothes, particularly so in a city full of restaurants serving meals that are just as good (if not better) at a fraction of the cost .
