I work at a steakhouse – customers are required to spend $100 EACH but it's the dress code that annoys them most
A STEAKHOUSE has sparked heated debate online over a policy requiring customers to spend $100 a piece at some locations.
The chain of contemporary steakhouses lists information about the $100 minimum on its website.
The steakhouse also details a “fine dining dress code policy” that people must follow if they want to dine at the restaurants.
“At Steak 48, we require resort casual attire for all of our guests,” the website says.
“Persons in ball cap style hats, excessively revealing clothing, or workout attire may not be admitted.”
The chain has locations in Houston, Charlotte, Chicago, and Philadelphia. The latter two locations also reportedly require a $100 per person food and beverage minimum.

An entry on the frequently asked questions section of the website reads: "Is a minimum spend rule in place?"
The text below it says: "Yes. There is a $100 per person food and beverage minimum for all dinner reservations in the dining rooms.
"Our bar and cocktail tables do not have a minimum and are available without a reservation beginning at 4pm daily.
"This does not include tax or tips. To support our Front Line Service Staff impacted by the current conditions there is a 20% minimum gratuity added to all checks."

Steak 48 was described as a luxury service restaurant that opened in September 2020. Management reportedly told The Inquirer that they were hoping for a $120 check average.
According to the website, the restaurant offers “the finest steaks and high-quality seafood in an intimate and vibrant setting.
“Our diverse menu will satisfy any personal craving, as we serve the best USDA prime steaks, succulent seafood, and shellfish along with inventive and classically inspired side dishes and appetizers.”
People took to social media and a Bored Panda article to share their thoughts on the strict rules.
"Can you say PRETENTIOUS?" one person wrote, while another shared a meme showing two men in extravagant clothing with the text: "This is the dress code for Steak 48."
Other people wondered if the $100 minimum meant that workers would be paid above minimum wage.

“I’ve never heard of Steak 48 until today. And even though I could afford it, you will never see me at Steak 48 or ANY restaurant that requires I spend at least $100 on my meal BEFORE tax & tip is figured in,” another commenter wrote.
The Sun contacted Steak 48 for comment on the reasoning behind their dress code and $100 minimum bill requirement.
