British Steakhouse Uncorks Wrong Bottle Of Wine
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm David Greene. So if you can't tell an expensive bottle of wine from an outrageously expensive one, you are not alone. It was a busy night at a British steakhouse. A table ordered a $300 bottle. The wine room was dark, and there was a mix-up. The customer got a $5,000 bottle. No one noticed until the table was cleared. The restaurant tweeted a photo of the bottle saying they look pretty similar, OK? Except they don't.
