I was reading Forbes and they had a list of the ten most expensive tasting menus. No surprise, but of the top ten in the world, four just happen to be in the gastronomic capital of the world, Paris. In fact, all four of the top five are from Paris. Here they are:

1. l'Arpege, Paris: $466 for a meal

2. Alain Ducasse Plaza Athanee, Paris: $437
3. Guy Savoy, Paris: $402 for nine courses
4. Masa, NYC: $400 for a 25 course Omakase menu
5. Pierre Gagnaire, Paris: $373 for a 9 course meal from the father of French fusion food
6. Joel Robuchon at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas: $360 for 12 courses
7. Louise XV, Alain Ducasse, Monaco: $307 for 6 courses
8. La Pergola, Rome: $267 for 9 courses and one of the world's most magical views
9. Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Hilton, Maldives Resort and Spa: this restaurant is under the sea, completely encased in glass
10. Eigensinn Farm, Singhampton, Ontario: $250 for 8 courses. The only Canadian restaurant to make the list - and does it all with no advertising.Way out in the boonies.

10. Per Se, NYC: $250 for 9 courses
