Pay What You Wish at Le Bec Fin

I just found out about an amazing promotion at Le Bec Fin for the month of July. They are offering a "Pay What You Wish" promotion Monday through Thursday at 7 PM for one chef's table of 20 people each night. Chef Perrier will come out to greet the table and find out about any dietary restrictions and then go off to the kitchen to prepare the meal for the whole table. You can reserve for anywhere from 2 to 20 people at this table--if you reserve less, you will share the table with others but that doesn't seem like a big deal to me. The check will come blank at the end of the meal and you decide what to pay. You can even bring your own wine!
It sounds too good to be true but I just called the restaurant and made a reservation. I asked questions and there is no catch, not even on BYOB--no corkage fee or anything.
Anyway, the hostess said the phone has been ringing all day and they are filling up very quickly. If you get the machine (I did), just keep calling back. More info here: http://cbs3.com/specialreports/3.On.Y...
Sounds too good to be true!
A high stakes gamble? We're talking about a table for 20 that is now booked midweek for the entire month of July that wouldn't have been booked otherwise.
I highly doubt that the majority of the people doing this are going to write in a ridiculously low amount on the bill where Mr. Perrier would lose money on the deal.
