I can’t believe we let @catholiver’s thread drift take us away from our very important Popcorn Chicken Schnitzel debate. (/s)
This is not about “we’re so wonderful you shouldn’t want to ask” AT ALL.
I believe that has ZERO influence in the decision not to post prices.
I agree that it is a business decision.
Updating menus is not a simple task.

Would it be best for Nightshade to post menu prices online? Yes. I think the restaurant would agree.
Are they able to prioritize posting menu prices online at this time? Apparently not.
Is this a reason not to eat at Nightshade? For me, no. For you, I hope not.
I think a lot of the torches burning here are due to gourmet “foodie” culture and high expectations of service bumping up against the realities of operating a restaurant as a business.
