Businesses also have to keep the lights on, pay workers comp, pay insurance, pay taxes, heat the building, maintain their equipment, along with numerous other expenses, plus have to make a profit to make it all worth while. To say that a restaurant shouldn't charge $16 for a burger because hamburger meat isn't that expensive is oversimplifying the issue to the highest degree.
The Village Kitchen must have all those requirements to run their restaurant and they only charge $6.75 for a delicious burger.
I guess most people who go to these high priced restaurants don't look at the cost anyway.
It's never crowded along the extra mile.
