Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

A Recipe For Disaster?

A Recipe For Disaster?

It seems that some restaurants in Britain are playing with fire, in as much as they are trying an experiment with allowing customers to pay what they like.

Michael Vasos, the owner of Just Around The Corner a French bistro in north London, tried the idea first. His customers are allowed to work out what they want to pay, without any argument, at the end of their meal.

Three other restaurants are following suit; Mju in Knightsbridge central London, Lanes in East London and Sweet Melinda's in Edinburgh.

However, Mr Vasos has a way of ensuring that people do not underpay. He gives them their money back, in order to humiliate them.
