The cost of dining out at full-service restaurants is on the rise according to the u-s department of labor.
Experts point to increased expenses – like labor, rent, and insurance – as the reason you’re being charging more.
In December, prices at full-service restaurants were up point-five percent from the prior month on a seasonally adjusted basis.
That’s the biggest monthly increase since March 2011, according to the consumer price index.
And in January, full-service restaurant prices were up 2-point-7 percent from a year earlier, well above the 1-point-6 percent annual rise for inflation overall.
