Man Left Furious After Strange Mix-Up At Famous Restaurant (PHOTOS)

A business dinner at the Bobby Flay Steakhouse in Atlantic City, NJ proved to be a lot more expensive than the party expected. According to the Daily Mail, a misunderstanding over a bottle of wine led to an astronomical bill being delivered to the table.

Joe Lentini admits that he doesn’t know the first thing about wine, but wanted something decent for the table to share. He asked the waitress for a little help.

“She pointed to a bottle on the menu. I didn't have my glasses. I asked how much and she said, "Thirty-seven fifty,"' he explains.

Joe and his table thought that the waitress had relayed a pocket-friendly cost of $37.50, so they went ahead and ordered the bottle. Turns out that the wine was actually a bottle of 2011 Screaming Eagle, which comes with the eye-popping price tag of $3,750.

To say that the party was a bit surprised with a bill of more than $4,000 would be an understatement. Discussions with management would ensue, and the restaurant was able to discount the wine – to $2,200.

“As the leading culinary destination in this region, we consistently serve as many, if not more high-end wine and spirits without incident,” shared the restaurant’s executive vice president, Joseph Lupo.
