For possibly the first time, Masa has cut the price of its prix fixe (from $450 to $400) instead of raising it. The reason is a 69 percent drop in crude oil (hence jet fuel, hence shipping) costs. “Veda Nishikawa, Masa’s business manager, said his freight costs ‘pretty much’ fell by half and that he wanted to pass the savings along to diners.” [Bloomberg]
