Most Expensive Meal - Page 4

post #91 of 97

Had a couple friends that ate at one of Thomas Keller's restaurants. They spent about $150 apiece then had to stop at McD's afterwards to fill up.

 

One of those guys was with me at a $250 per person wine dinner I had one of our vendors pay for. The wine was a 10-year flight of Caymus Special Select. Awesome. The host hosed the hotel we were at on the food budget and we ended up with a meal I was almost embarrassed at for the chef. If it were me, I would have took a loss on that dinner just to look good.

Had a $300 tab at Mockingbird Bistro in Houston once(including wine and tip). Worth every penny. I have since returned 4 times and its probably my favorite restaurant in Houston.

I just ate at Alinea a few weeks ago - $450 for one person, with wine pairing.  That is not something I would want to spend on a meal too often!  But, I figure it is a once in a lifetime sort of meal.

The most expensive meal I've ever had was at Boneta in Vancouver. It was 200 with tip for 2 people. Was it with it? Yes, but by no means was it the best meal I've ever had.

 Harrisonh: So are people from India now making tacos?  Or are you finding Native Mexicans who are selling tacos?  I guess you lost me on that one, since tacos is not really a Mexican food.

Ireland, Ashford Castle on my honeymoon. Four course dinner featuring local trout and vision from the property. Came in around $350. Worth every penny! The maitre d' was amazing and the chef's cooking tableside did a fantastic job.

The most expensive meal we've ever had was a last hurrah dinner before Foiehibition hit California. It was coordinated by CHEFS (Coalition for Humane & Ethical Farming Standards), hosted at Melisse in Santa Monica, and featured a 6 course dinner with wine pairings, each prepared by a different famed chef hailing from Northern or Southern California. $200/person, although that included a $100 donation to CHEFS.

 

The 2nd most expensive (arguably the most if you don't count donations) was our 10-course dinner at Ken Oringer's Clio Restaurant in Boston. We happened to mention that we were visiting from California and really missed foie gras... Chef did not disappoint! That dinner was $135/person, no wine or drinks. We have no regrets. :)
