While treating the love of your life out to a fine wine and dining experience might seem like a good idea after a bonus lottery win, some dining experiences truly cater to the super affluent and the ludicrous price of some dishes can only be topped by the lavishness of the cuisine. Players better be sure that their win is in the top lucky lottery prize tiers. Let’s have a look at some of the most expensive restaurants in the world, where one night out could literally break the bank:
Masa, New York City
New York’s Masa is located in the Time Warner Center and combines the meal with an exclusive, one-of-a-kind dining experience. The ‘culinary event’ takes approximately three hours and is presented as a multi-course. Customers are seated and presented with a series of fresh dishes straight from the kitchen as there are no set menus. Head Chef Masa Takayama advises dressing comfortably so you may be ready for the feast ahead. The bill rounds off to approximately $350 per person excluding tax, tip or drinks, with a carafe of sake at $400 or $1,500 for a ’95 Chateau Margaux Bordeaux.
Misoguigawa, Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto (Japan)
French cuisine with a Japanese twist definitely has our interests piqued. The delicacies on offer are describes as ‘a harmonizing of French spirit and Japanese culture’. The Kyoto establishment has been serving kaiseki-style French cuisine since 1981 and is located in a former teahouse. The eight-course seasonal menu will cost at least $162 with a fancier version coming in at $270 with tax and must be ordered at least five days in advance. The menu features such delights as beef filet with potato soufflés, buttered French beans and roasted pumpkin.
Le Pre Catelan, Paris
The trendy Parisian restaurant is in the heart of Bois de Boulogne Park in France. Dishes start at $85 and desserts at around $43 with 7 course meals on offer for $255 including tax and service fee. $199 per person gets you a five-course meal as their summer special. Dishes include prawn ravioli in olive oil broth or veal paired with cinnamon-scented puree.
Back in Japan again, we have a look at Beige which is located at the top of the Chanel building in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood. The restaurant is another one of famed chef Alain Ducasse’s outposts. He’s been awarded the lifetime achievement at the 2013 World’s 50 Best Restaurants. He’s restaurants, cooking schools, cookbooks and consultation services saw revenues of $15million in 2002 and have increased along with his successes and popularity. That being said, it then goes without saying that the measure of success he has earned has spilled over to the restaurants that he administers over, Beige notwithstanding. The restaurant offers French cuisine with seasonal Japanese ingredients, an amalgamation very pleasing to the palate and popular with locals with price tags of $147 or $190 for three or four-course dinners.
Gordon Ramsay, London
The TV chef and popular restaurateur’s restaurants are very prestigious and meticulous as is indicative of his catering styling. Holding 3 Michelin stars since 2001, this ‘Gordon Ramsey’ is located in the neighborhood of Chelsea, London. Seasonal specials include a series of courses for around $320, excluding 12.5% gratuity which totals the meal to more likely $355.
