So I am not saying that this is your average restaurant profit margin, but
the drinks menu is really the killer.
Here's a bottle of Cinzano vermouth we had at Barbeque Nation, Hyderabad a
couple of nights ago.
We were charged Rs. 150 per 30ml, i.e. $93.75 for 750ml. A bottle of 750ml
costs $6. A profit margin of 1465%
Because, of course, a restaurant has zero setup and operational costs,
and import duties on liquor are nil too.
