    How did you miss it! You were on top of this all the way. Too bad, I was looking forward to reading your report. Now it's all on Pete to fill us in.

    Maybe there will be some tickets on the black market, though I imagine they will cost a pretty penny.

    El Bulli is a 29-course menu, inclusive of food and beverage, for $ 365.

    Sicily and Kyoto pricing for food for tables of 2 and 4, per person, is:

    Wednesday / Thursday / Friday / Saturday / Sunday
    $ 85 $ 90 $ 100 $ 110 $ 90

    Beverage pairings for Sicily and Kyoto are:

    Non-Alcoholic / Standard Wine / Reserve Wine
    $ 48 $ 68 $ 90

    The 6-person kitchen table is priced at $ 165 with $ 110 for the beverage pairing.

    And I don't think this includes gratuity.

    The reason why it is so much more expensive than Sicily and Kyoto is that they cannot turn the tables during the evening. Only one seating per night.

    Doesn't sound out of the norm for this level. About the same as The French Laundry. I really want to eat there to see their food and presentation"plating."

    I was thinking if was too low to be true. I mean, that's just a silly price making me feel ashamed for the restaurant-business in Sweden. But then, it's so much more expensive running a restaurant here and most estabilishments are already running on a bare-minimum winnings.

    But 365 for 29 courses is too low for me to comprehend.

    How long does a 29 course meal take. That is hard for me to wrap my mind around.

    I think they try to keep it under four hours.

    $365 is a hell of a lot more than I've ever spent on myself for dinner, but in this case, it sounds pretty reasonable. I would happily pay it for the experience, but don't make enough money to do it very often.
