Not About Food 23

A week ago my daughter and son-in-law celebrated their anniversary at Laboratorio del Galileo in DC. Being a Chowhound, I of course, received a detailed description of their entire meal. They had a wonderful experience and I'm sure an anniversary they shall never forget.

I, being a gray-hair, turned even grayer when they told me the cost of the dinner! Yesterday while perusing the Chowhound boards I came across a discussion on tipping which centered around an $800 dinner at Alinea in Chicago.

Since I am a etiree and don't eat out nearly as often as I once did, these two incidents got me to thinking about the most expensive restaurants in the country. So, my question is, where are the most expesive restauants and what are the average costs in these establishments? I think wine costs should be left out of the discussion since one or two bottles of good wine can considerably run up the tab.

Dinner for two, sans wine. Where are they?
