The Cheesecake Factory will begin posting drink prices at its seven Massachusetts locations after a lawyer threatened a lawsuit. Newton lawyer Ross Mitchell had threatened to sue under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act on behalf of a friend who was charged $11 for a margarita at a Cheesecake Factory in Chestnut Hill. The price was not on the menu and the server was only able to provide a range of drink costs… Texas Wesleyan law professor Franklin Snyder weighed in on the practice in a New York Times column about a diner who ordered a lunch special—pasta with white truffles—without knowing the price. The charge was $275.
