Blue Hill at Stone Barns

An 8-course meal for two with wine pairings for each course, cost $660 in total.
And that wasn't even the most expensive option on the menu!

We went for our wedding anniversary. It was an outstanding experience all around.

lol - yea, probably!

I think it was Texas d'Brazil. (I didn't remember the name of it until I read back through some of the other responses). They brought the meat 'round each table on skewers and then the salads and sides were served on a buffet table in the center of the restaurant - my kids and hubby are not adventurous eaters, so they ate meat. And dessert. And nothing else. Sooo not worth it.

By choice, the most we've spent for the four of us was about $100 before tip - at Saltgrass. They have them here in TX, but we first went to one in Colorado Springs, and feel that the steaks they serve in CO were seasoned MUCH better than what they offer here in TX - go figure!

We used to eat at Saltgrass in Lewisville. I don't think we ever spent that much, but think we mainly went for lunch. As for the Texas D' Brazil, we ate at one or one similar, in Grapevine and I think it was about $30 a person but worth every penny. The salad bar was the best I have ever had, not the largest but the best and so was the meat..

Yes, we moved near Dallas a year after that and they have one here. So -that year for my birthday we took all the gift $$ people spent and took the kids. We had a fabulous time - I think it was $200 for the four of us - but that was including a show and "premiere" seats, plus souvenirs. It was so much fun!

We went to one in Chicago - the sides and salad bar were 'different' - no iceberg lettuce, cucumber slices and ranch dressing there! $30pp would've been nice. I think it was something like $55pp plus drinks and dessert and tip. Again - for LUNCH. I don't remember if the meat was worth it. I know hubby (carnivore extraordinaire) said he thought it was 'ok', but I think that was after the check!

For my 40th birthday last year my husband surprised me by taking me to Rothman's steak house. I had been there twice before. The suprise was 27 people waiting for me. Close friends and Immediate family. I am not sure what the total bill was but I think it may have been $1,000. I don't think that's bad for that many people. I could be mistaken and it may have been more. Best Steaks and sides I have ever had. Everyone got to order what ever they wanted for an appetizer, main course & dessert. My husband picked the sides.

I went to a local Greek restaurant with my fiancée, and I payed around 500 - 600 Swedish kronor for the visit... $72 - $86.40... for ONE person... sure, the food was outstanding but that was one expensive dinner...

My ex paid over $700 for us two at Capital Grille in Miami. It included two $150 shots of Louis the thirteenth for him so technically it was over $400 in food only..
