One expensive evening out, $47,221.09
It wasn't the $100 Truffle Carpaccio, or the $195 Truffle Tagliolini that made up the bulk of this dinner, more the $5,000 bottles of wine and champagne that made up for most of it. Recession? What recession?

Diners slugged $1000 for simple meal
Sure, maybe if it was laced with the worlds finest truffles and sprinkled with gold, but I wouldn't pay it for a stock standard pasta! Apparently some Japanese tourists got slugged with a bill of nearly 700 Euro's for two plates of pasta, a bottle of water, a bottle of wine and a fruit salad.
Got a spare wad of cash you're looking to spend in Rome? You're out of luck. Authorities closed it down after they found out!
A RESTAURANT in Rome which presented a Japanese tourist with a bill for nearly 700 euros ($A1224.31) after a meal with his fiancee has been closed down by the authorities, Il Messaggero daily reported.
Moo Brew beer being snapped up at $25 a bottle
... and I thought Crown Lager at AU$40/carton was expensive.... Marketed as Tasmania's most expensive beer, Moo Brew beer is being snapped up at AU$25 a bottle, AU$600 a carton. With a taste described as "...a range of flavours from different roasted malts right back through to chocolate, toffee, biscuit and toast.", wouldn't you pay $600/carton? :D
AT MORE than one dollar a sip and $600 a carton Moorilla's newest brew is anything but the typical drink. That's especially the case for those looking to find solace in during a global recession. But devout beer lovers are defying the economic gloom and buying up big on Moo Brew's 2008 Vintage Stout at $25 per 330ml bottle.
$300 Focaccia - that's some dough
Related to the Pizza family, a Focaccia is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and herbs, topped with onion, cheese and meat, or flavored with a number of vegetables
. Not sure how popular this one would be though with a price tag of AU$300! With every ingredient imported, this give the customer a true taste of Italy.
YOU better be a bread-winner if you want to take a bite out of this fancy focaccia. The Focaccia Cecchio Impero Romano - signature dish of the SkyCity's new Il Piatto restaurant - will set diners back a cool $300.

Scouring the nation in search of burger perfection
By Neal Ungerleider
On May 26, millions of Americans celebrated Memorial Day with backyard barbecues. While most of our grills were filled with the usual Grade-A meat from local butchers and supermarkets, dozens of restaurants across the country served Kobe-beef burgers topped not with ketchup and mustard, but truffles and foie gras. The price tags on these wallet-busting burgers can reach $175.
New York home to $175 hamburger
Seems New York is the place to get your Gold Flake fix. Remember the $25,000 dessert?
