Misleading specials and $55 cocktails could be a thing of the past on Ocean Drive

The regulations come in response to complaints that some Ocean Drive restaurants trick customers into ordering expensive food and drinks at outdoor tables or fail to include prices on menus, hitting unsuspecting tourists with hefty bills. At a few restaurants on the popular South Beach street, a single cocktail can cost more than $50 and food specials can stick tourists with checks in the hundreds of dollars, the Miami Herald has found.

The rules aim to “improve the way some bad apples have been treating our customers on Ocean Drive,” said Commissioner Mark Samuelian, who sponsored the amendment. “We’re trying to ensure that the customer has clarity on what they’re going to pay,” he added.
