Omnivore - 'Thanks for purchasing four of our gold-plated steaks'

"Thank y'all and please come again."

We're all used to hearing that at places like Mary Mac's, but not so much at big-ticket places. My friend Gregg reports that the day after a $600-plus meal for four at Kevin Rathbun Steak, he received a call from the restaurant thanking him for coming in.

I've never heard of such a policy and assumed it might have something to do with the amount of money he spent. But I ran into an acquaintance who works at the restaurant and he told me they do it with everyone. If this becomes a popular practice, it could get really annoying.
