As costs rise, Bay Area restaurants weigh in on an unpopular move: Raising menu prices
Your favorite sandwich might cost $1 more than it did a few weeks ago. The crab pasta you loved eating at Fisherman’s Wharf may now share space with shrimp. And the cookies you bought in a local pop-up may appear smaller on your next visit.
Bay Area restaurants face rising costs of seemingly everything, they say, from meat and eggs to flour and takeout containers. As a result, owners make difficult decisions to compensate. Some raise menu prices, others adjust portion sizes or cut dishes altogether.
