Edge: Supperland Called Out For Menu Prices

Supperland is the topic of discussion after Charlotteans call out the establishment for high prices and not being true to Charlotte's roots

One of Plaza Midwood’s newest restaurants, “Supperland” is being called out by a contributor to The Charlotte Observer for its menu prices. Which includes $13 wagyu frank and beans, $12 mashed potatoes, and $16 cookies (four). Which are all deemed shareable. City Councilman Larken Egleston joined the conversation on Twitter saying, “For anyone wondering why restaurants don’t pay their workers more, here’s your answer. Many people believe wages should go up while menu prices stay the same.” Supperland owners Jamie Brown and Jeff Tonidandel say their employee’s pay starts at $12.37. However the author of the article says the bigger picture is about keeping Charlotte authentic to its roots without having high-priced food.

That brings us to our question of the night: Are you willing to spend more money on a restaurant’s menu or the ambiance?
