What's a Saturday Night Reservation Worth?

The peak/off-peak pricing model, coming soon to a restaurant near you: Grant Achatz, of Chicago’s Alinea, plans to open a new restaurant with a unique pricing model. “Ticket price will depend on which seating you buy – Saturday at 8 PM will be more expensive than Wednesday at 9:30 PM,” says the restaurant’s website. “This will allow us to offer an amazing experience at a very reasonable price. We will also offer an annual subscription to all four menus at a discount with preferred seating.” Readers, what do you think will happen? (HT:?Brian LaFlamme)?[%comments]
