Hidden Overpriced Restaurant Bottled Water Exposed By Miami New Times

Hidden Overpriced Restaurant Bottled Water Exposed By Miami New Times

The Miami New Times conducted a survey of twelve upscale Miami restaurants to see if they listed the price of bottled water on their menus. Out of the twelve, only one listed them, and the unlisted bottles cost unsuspecting diners $5-$10 each. The cost of restaurant-bottled water is becoming as expensive as alcoholic beverages.

Enter the Vero Water difference. According to the article, five of the restaurants offer Vero Water at a fraction of the cost. The most expensive bottle of Vero that they found was $2 at Makoto, and two others serve it for free. Since our restaurant filtration system has flat, sparkling and ambient water, diners have the same options such as Aqua Panna, Perrier and Pellegrino.

The article breaks down the cost of water for each restaurant in the survey. As you can see, Vero comes in way below bottled water without any sacrifice in quality. Watch out for hidden restaurant bottled water costs and menus that do not have pricing listed. You may be in for a pretty big surprise when that check comes.
