You can never be too picky when it comes to where you eat, but how far are you willing to go? The most expensive restaurants in the world may offer some incredible experiences, but they also come at a hefty price (depending on how much you’re willing to spend). From Japan, to London, to Switzerland, having a night out at one of these amazing locations might just be worth the bill.
Number Seven: Masa – New York, New York. Our first stop is in New York City, to visit Chef Masa Takayama’s restaurant, aptly named Masa. This is a beautiful sushi joint where the chef surprises patrons with dishes, leaving it up to him to select their meals. It’s $450 per person, and reservations must be made three weeks in advance.
Number Six: Beige Alain Ducasse Tokyo – Tokyo, Japan. Our next stop is in Tokyo for a bite at Alain Ducasse’s Beige. It offers French cuisine with seasonal Japanese ingredients. Three or even four course dinners will run you anywhere from $147 to $190, with their Cep and Matsutake mushroom menu priced at $259.
Number Five: Restaurant Gordon Ramsay – London, England. Everyone who is a reality TV fanatic should be familiar with the name Gordon Ramsay. The Scottish chef has his own establishment in London, and it is just as extravagant as you would imagine. Restaurant Gordon Ramsay located in London has wine that costs around $18,850, you shouldn’t expect anything less from a restaurant that has three Michelin stars.
Number Four: Restaurant de l’Hotel de Ville Crissier – Crissier, Switzerland. Another three Michelin star-rated restaurant is Crissier, way over in Switzerland. This highly praised but costly eatery offers diners a meal of several different courses, and it will end up costing about $415.
Number Three: Le Meurice – Paris, France. If a bill over $500 doesn’t end up scaring you away, Le Meurice in Paris is a must-see. Though it is in a hotel, nobody can deny there is nothing classier and more expensive than crystal chandeliers and marble, especially when your view is overlooking the Jardin des Tuileries.
Number Two: Ithaa Undersea – Alifu Dhaalu Atoll, Maldives. Our final two restaurants have amazing food, but they’re most well known for their locations. If a restaurant under water can’t hold your attention, I’m not sure what else can. With Ithaa, you are literally getting a panoramic view of the coral gardens that surround it. In order to get into this exquisite establishment, you’ll have to fork over $500.
Number One: Sublimotion – Ibiza, Spain. Sublimotion is the world’s most expensive restaurant, but I’m quite certain that you’ve never heard of it. Only 12 people at a time can be inside, and it combines stellar designs, psychology and technology in order to create the perfect dining experience. Just don’t mind the $2,000 bill at the end of it all.
