I'm Asking: What's the Most You've Spent on a Meal Out? by Smart Living 8/11/09 0 Shares Like us on Facebook An expensive meal is pretty subjective. One person's $20 meal might be a stretch, someone else's $80 meal could be no biggie, while another eater's $200 meal is a weekly occurrence. What's the most you've ever spent on a meal out?

It was incredible, both the food and because it proved to him (I alredy knew) that I could do it regularly - I learned how at ProfitsOnWallStreet - and the bill included their most expensive bottle of wine - I dont drink - ....was totally worth it and I can't wait to do it again 5 years $500 for the two of us, at Victoria's & Albert's - the restaurant at the Grand Floridian in Disneyland. AlenaJohnson 5 years $225 Dhorwich 5 years Probably $150-200. As much as I love, love, LOVE eating out I can't justify the big dinner expense anymore. Thankfully my job has me eating out a lot and the foodie in me gets to enjoy on a budget that way. partysugar 5 years I'm not sure exactly, but I do know that on a regular basis, when I'm just eating out at normal places it's usually $50-60 for just me. aistea311 5 years $100+ at Dans Le Noir in London. It was the restaurant where you eat in complete darkness and do not see the menu until the end of the night :) Totally worth it! Symphonee 5 years I spent a little under $200 for my nieces' birthday dinner a few years ago. I felt like I had money to burn and there was eight of us. Never again! simplyfab87 5 years Anything above $50 is not going to happen. bengalspice 5 years My boyfriend spent over $300 on a dinner at Babbo's for one of our anniversaries. c4rolin3 5 years bigestive - I'm quite enthralled by him. Why can't you stand him? Did you watch his most recent stint of tv programmes where he hosted dinner parties? I'm just fascinated by it all. Maybe when your boyfriend rants and raves about it - you might be a tad jealous?! hehe x However I would love to go to Marco Pierre White's restaurant too. Been to Rick Stein's in Padstow which was sensational. But just the bistro and I can't remember it being that expensive? Fifteen (Jamie Oliver's restaurant for trainee's was only £55 for the taster menu too). Obviously that's because he's not cooking there. (My sister lives in Cornwall, hence the Cornish related last paragraph!) bigestivediscuit 5 years c4rolin, my boyfriend wanted to take me to The Fat Duck for my birthday but I'm so glad he didn't because I have absolutely no interest in the food and I can't stand Heston Blumenthal, but my bf thinks he's an absolute genius, so he's going without me! I took him out to a Marco Pierre White restaurant a while ago just randomly and my bill came to £98. That is the most I have ever personally spent on a meal. luna08 5 years $180 per person, before alcohol. We have great restaurants here! c4rolin3 5 years I went to The Fat Duck restaurant in Bray, Berkshire in the UK. It's £130 a head, for the most sensational 13 course taster menu ever. I don't know if you'll have heard of Heston Blumenthal, but he's known as a culinary alchemist. You should check out his menu- one of the courses is a bacon and egg ice cream. When it's not just a meal but an experience, I think it's worth while. :) skigurl 5 years i've been at dinners where it's been over $100 but i was treated to it by my company or some rich investment bankers i've definitely spent over $100 but that would include tons of booze in terms of actual meals and no booze, probably $80ish cotedazur 5 years About $350 at Morton's Steakhouse for my husband and me, and about 300 euros at an Alain Ducasse restaurant in Provence... both were worth it! Kelli14713702 5 years $300 on an anniversary dinner. 5 years about $85 for me. That was at Spago in Maui. No alcohol included! mek123 5 years Probably about $150 per person GlowingMoon 5 years Truthfully, I don't know. Usually on those special, rare evenings, my husband takes care of everything, and I let him (read: This is his gift to me. It's something he's planned and orchestrated, and so I accept). He pays with his own discretionary money (as opposed to our joint monies). We have complete autonomy over our own discretionary monies (that's our agreement). Our joint monies require co-agreement, but not our discretionary funds. On those special evenings, he chose to spend his discretionary funds on us. He doesn't like it when I ask how much the total bill was for the meal (because he knows I'm frugal :)). Or if he also took me to the ballet, he doesn't want to tell me the price of the tickets either. He would say,"I got it. Just enjoy yourself." So I'm kind of clueless. If I really wanted to know, I can dig for the information (I have access to our accounts). But my husband wouldn't like it. Those evenings are his gift to me, and he would think my prying would be rude. Also, he may think I may get mad because I thought it was too expensive. LOL. bluebellknoll 5 years About $200 for the hubby and me. Chouette4u 5 years Somewhere between $450 and $500 for the two of us. SDTransplant 5 years Probably around $100 for my b/f and me. supercoolnat 5 years Probably about $150 for my husband and I. That kind of budget is definitely only for very rare special occasions. bingbingboom 5 years $200 at Beso Spectra 5 years Once, my husband and I went to a really nice restaurant for Valentine's Day and I think we spent about $60, but we weren't that impressed with the food and we decided the next time we shell out good money for food, it will be when we go out to visit my cousin in San Francisco where there are some halfway decent restaurants. Aside from the American Club in Kohler, there are like, NO good restaurants in Wisconsin.
