Most Expensive Restaurant Meal

What's the most expensive restaurant meal you've ever eaten--and was it worth it?
A few years ago, my brother in law treated us to Ruth Chris Steak House. The tab came to $300, for six of us. I had lamb. Was it worth it? Yes, it was very good. And I didn't have to pay for it!
The most expensive meal I did pay for was in London. My girlfriend and I went to a restaurant whose name I've forgotten. (It's a chain, I remember.) Our meal came to 60 pounds, roughly $100. Again, I had lamb. Yes, that was worth it.

I take my husband to Boca, a small place in Cincnnati every year for his birthday. Last year our bill was $275 for two, including a modest bottle of red wine.

Our breakfast at Brennens, in New Orleans, was $120 for the two of us, plus drinks and tips. That'$ been about 12 year$ ago.
In '85, we ate at a French restaurant in Chicago at the top of a skyscraper that looked out over Lake Michigan...Tower Point Club? That meal was well over $100, and we didn't have any drinks, except the complimentary glass of wine that came with the meal.
We went with friends to a local gourmet restaurant about 10 years ago, and for the four of us, the bill was well over $300.
We get by with a little help from our friends

In Cebu Philippines we had a meal for 12 people. hokaido crabs, abalone sashimi in its shell, Kobe beef staeak and Fugu (puffer fish) three ways (sashimi, grilled tail, boiled intestines, boile innards and stew with soba noodles). Japanese honey dew melons. it cost us 3,000.oo dollors. The ingredients were flown in from tokyo and prepared upon our request. The chef is japanese. was it good??? well the puffer fish while being dangerous to eat and the chef needs a license to prepare it was really overated. The kobe beef is spectacular and the japanese Honey dew Melons are really out of this world.

Game over - you win!

Dominique's in DC area - 6 of us - roughly 1988 - $1800...and that was supposedly a deal as one of the girls with us "knew" the/one of the owners.
