Peruvian Restaurant Is Fined Over Sexist ‘Ladies Menu’
A famed restaurant in Peru’s capital of Lima is learning an expensive lesson when it comes to giving women menus that don’t include prices. The expensive seaside La Rosa Nautica restaurant is being fined $62,000 for its practice of handing a gold menu void of any details on what the fish ceviche or seared scallops might cost to women who are dining out with men. Men are given blue menus with the price beside each option, a custom the restaurant defended during legal proceedings as one that allows women to “enjoy a romantic evening” without having to worry about the cost of their food. But authorities found otherwise, ruling that the restaurant has been discriminating against women.
Here is a photo of the restaurant:

In addition to the fine, the restaurant will also have to immediately begin offering men and women the same menu with prices, train staff, and post a sign clearly stating that discrimination will not be tolerated.
