Dont want to skew this yet... but 4 figures...
Does it come with a happy ending?
Yeah, but how much did you tip?
How much for a single or a couple?
Include drinks and wine?
This is probably the most important question that will be posted in this thread. We need an answer to that before even considering the OP's query.
Can we include airfare and ground transportation in that?
The perfect meal would be one that tasted amazing and would sustain me in comfort for the rest of my lifetime so however much I would otherwise spend of food and tips.
Not much, maybe $20-25 / person.
Last semester, I had three dinners at one of the most expensive steakhouses in our city. (We had a faculty search going on at the time.) It's fairly famous nationwide and is 2-3x more expensive than a regular steakhouse like Logan's or Longhorn. The food was about the same, if not a little lower quality. During one meal, they gave all of us the wrong food and people ended up eating something other than what they ordered. During another, the waiter only checked on us about twice in an hour, and I sat there with an empty glass most of that time. I almost got up to get a refill myself. At all three meals, the noise level was high enough to prevent easy conversation.
Similarly, I go to a lot of committee meetings, and they usually provide a fancy dinner each evening. I'm sure they're very expensive, but again, the quality is similar to what one would get for $20 at Logan's. Often, the quality isn't even as good.
I guess here's the positive spin on this: It's pretty cool that most anybody can get a very high quality restaurant meal for a reasonable price nowadays!
can't be purchased.
mom, both grandmothers would need to cook it.
eaten by family, including all those who don't need to eat anymore.
followed by aunt and mom on the piano, grandpa singing.
it would be outstanding to see my grandparents meet my grandchildren, and the look on mom's face seeing her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
the list of the dead grows annually.
Can I supersize it?
Ok, so since there are questions not answers... man up! Give your take or be a wuss.
You give me my mom's from Italy cooking, say 30 years ago, antipasto. lamb, home made ravioli, then salad, cheese , then coffee and fruit spumoni,and the company from then and now. I'd go for $1000 per person to experience again, easy.
I've done Michelin star restaurants at $250 per head that were worth it. I've done, high priced wine Champagne and drinks-- to me never worth it.
Recently, had a sushi Omokase dinner for 2, (guest had saki, me no) for $552...
Complete rip off... theft.
Then again a $1.62 Costco polish is great, with a soda. So is Iberico ham at $90 a lb. worth it.
This!!!... but how much per head? I'd rather have an event than a nice casket.
You can get it for the price of a single bullet, or use a knife and get it free. It will however end with a lethal injection.
Is this going to turn into an, I'm so rich because I spent xxx on dinner threads?
Yes! But not paid for sex, real amour.
can't be purchased. the cooks are on permanent strike.
aunts, uncles, dead.
to see, hear, and interact, i need to remember, dream.

Nope you can trade years of life, lawn mowing etc,...
