How much is too much to pay for a good meal?

I love to eat out, as all of you on this site do as well! However, I am young (mid 20s) and while I am a working professional, living in NY is expensive and cannot even imagine going to Babbo or (heaven forbid) Per Se- the prices are so high! (I am not judging anyone who does- but weighing the cost versus the satisfaction of a delicious meal factor, it just does not seem worth it to me). My price range, even for a special occasion usually is $15 or less for an appetizer, $25 or less for an entree, if there is a prix-fixe, $40 or less per person without drinks. As I have been able to find quality meals for these prices (or less!) even for special occasions, I just do not undertand why someone would be willing to pay more than $30 for an entree. But I know that a lot of people do- is it ever worth it? Am I missing out? Am I cheap? :}
