Extravagance is subjective, no doubt about it: A $500 tasting menu is either a big splurge or just dinner, depending on how you’re living. Some people are willing to blow their savings on a $1000 donut dipped in 24-karat gold, and others globetrot from one fabulous meal to another and drink vintage wines daily, no big deal. But everyone can probably agree on one thing: A $2 million dinner is definitely extravagant. Billion-dollar popcorn? Um, sounds extravagant. Here, we’ve rounded up a handful of experiences that we’re pretty sure qualify too. Let us know which one wins in the poll below.
1. $2 Million Dinner
The tab for this OTT meal is how much?! You know what they say: If you have to ask…
2. $45 Soup
That’s no typo: This soup actually costs $45. Needless to say, it’s no ordinary soup.
3. Celebrity Wedding Feasts
There’s no better excuse to blow it out than on your wedding day, right? For these celebrities, including Kim and Kanye, William and Kate, and Top Chef’s own Gail Simmons, the wedding festivities involved seriously crave-worthy feasts.
4. Most Exclusive Restaurant in the World
This elusive restaurant promises a spectacular culinary experience you won’t soon forget, at a fittingly steep price. That’s if you can actually track down this place.
5. Billion Dollar Popcorn
The name is a slight exaggeration: The popcorn costs only $5 a kernel. But think about it for a second: Five dollars per kernel. Worth it? You decide.
