Need a really Expensive place to eat at

My friend lost a bet to me and the wager was a free dinner to anywhere. So i need your guys help to make a list of a the most expensive place to eat in town lol. I'm talking about 50 dollar plus for a steak the size of a toonie so i would have to order 3 of them.

Most expensive place would be restaurants with the oldest wine on their wine list.. you can walk out 30k lighter or more. Meat like steak are cheap. It is wine and truffles that cost the money.

Bishops is a great restaurant. Probably not the most expensive but I doubt you'll find too many places in the city where you can have better food.

I thought there was that new rule where your alcohol tab could not exceed your food tab. Therefore buying a $30,000 bottle of wine would require $30,000 worth of food? Or was that just all talk and wasn't passed.

It got thrown out I think.. However any high end restaurant wills get you some white truffle in anything (pre order).. the more you add.. the more it will be.. add a few ounces into everything you order will easily add a few extra digits to the bill.

Food can only cost so much. Unless you eating something exotic or in high demand. And you can only eat so much. But wine on the other hand.

Fat Duck is 45 minutes west of London, ranked high due to Heston Blumenthal's micro gastronomy techniques. The current top restaurant in the world is El Bulli south of Barcelona on the coast. They only accept bookings for the coming season from midnight January 1st. I emailed them right at the stroke but had my application (for the requested weekend) rejected last week.

Because El Bulli will be closed for 2 years.
