TruffleGate Followup

truffle-oops-200.jpgDavid Segal, author of the NYT's The Haggler column, follows up with a law professor on the story of a diner who wasn't told that a truffled pasta dish cost $275. Said the professor: "[A] restaurant meal is a 'sale of goods' under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code... The code provides that where the buyer and seller have agreed to a contract but have not agreed on the price, the price is not what the seller subsequently demands... In this circumstance, a customer should make a reasonable offer for the value of the meal, then walk out and wait to be sued for breach of contract." [NYT]
