Trains, airlines and theaters do it, why not restaurants? Off-peak pricing is coming to Next Restaurant in Chicago, which is scheduled to open in the fall. The price of a meal -- which will be five to six courses and include food, beverage pairings and service -- will depend on what type of seating a diner wants to buy. As the Next website puts it, a Saturday table at 8 p.m. will be more expensive than Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.

"This will allow us to offer an amazing experience at a very reasonable price," according to the website. "We will also offer an annual subscription to all four menus at a discount with preferred seating."
