What's the most overpriced menu item you've seen?

A new restaurant opened up in town, German beer hall style.

Apple and Beet Salad - $17

I went through the rest of the description, "...toasted hazelnut vinaigrette, frisee lettuce, sundried figs."

No meat, no cheese, no gold dust... I can't wrap my head around $17. Sure in the scheme of things it's not expensive compared to other appetizers and I've spent 4 times that on a salad at a 3 michelin star restaurant but it seems too expensive for what you're getting. A salad. At a pub.
