A 44-Page Water Menu: Another First World Problem Solved
August 21st, 2013
All water is created equal. So how come some bottles are way more expensive than others? It’s all in the packaging and marketing, my friends, and there are only too many people who are willing to part with tens of dollars for a substance that they can get for a couple of cents from their tap.
If, however, you’re extremely particular about the water that you drink (and can afford it!), then you might want to check out the 44-page water menu (PDF) that Los Angeles-based eatery Ray’s & Stark Bar has unveiled.
When we say “water menu”, we mean exactly just that. It will be a menu listing down a “variety” of water, including some that have been imported from countries all over the globe. Among the pricier ones is Berg, which is harvested from the glaciers in Western Greenland and costs $20 per bottle.
In all fairness, each bottle of H2O gets a spacious two-page spread, so the menu really lists only 20 individual bottles. Decisions, decisions.
