Here’s more fodder for the ongoing debate about the new Elisir restaurant’s 29-cent surcharge for filtered tap water: it seems that Border Grill at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas is charging a “water fee” of 50 cents per glass. As chef Enzo Fargione helpfully pointed out yesterday, the charge at Elisir is applied per guest, not per glass. Even if you can get 29 gallons out of the faucet at home in D.C. for the same price as the Elisir fee, isn’t it comforting to know that sipping the stuff in Sin City is a bigger ripoff?
