With chef celebrity saturating restaurant news this week – we have Top Chef set to air tonight and the Hottest Chef in NYC competitions in full swing – I decided to refocus attention onto what really makes restaurant news… outlandish prices and power chef collaborations.
Okay, just a bit of facetiousness there, but considering I have no Top Chef Season 5 previews or insider picks for NYC’s Hottest Chef to offer, I bring the conversation back to ridiculously overpriced meals a la the dynamic duo of Thomas Keller and Grant Achatz.
No, I did not misplace a zero. Unsurprisingly all three dinners have already been booked. Don’t let the hefty bill fool you, tax, wine, and tip are all figured into the flat amount.
This also includes autographed copies of the menu.
And who knows, you might be able to reap the cost of dinner by selling the autographed menus on eBay.
