I think of myself as your foppish Arts/Humanities sort, but I realise I'm a quantitative geek compared to the average American. And I do love seeing data like these breakdowns of amounts charged to Citibank cards at New York restaurants:
As I remarked on the Per Se / Sifton thread: Per Se has a larger spread of payment totals than other restaurants. And 10 per cent of its revenue derives from dinners over $3000. The median (and mode) total appears to be $800... dinner for 2 + perhaps $150 of wine + tax?
