A Table at the World’s Most Exclusive Restaurant Costs $1050
With a little luck and some very deep pockets, you can be one of the world’s elite few to dine at Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck’s temporary location in Melbourne, Australia. The three-Michelin-starred restaurant will be opening in Melbourne for six months in 2015 from February 3 until August 15, and will be taking lottery-based reservations for $525 a plate for the chance to dine at this very exclusive spot.
Interested? The Fat Duck will run an online ballot from October 8 to October 26. All told, only 16,000 people will be able to dine at the restaurant, but already, Fat Duck representatives said they have received 40,000 inquires.
It’s a race to the amuse-bouche, and if you happen to be one of the lucky golden ticket holders you will be treated to a 15-course dinner that will stretch over the course of four hours, and include such gastronomical creations and oddities as snail porridge, “sounds of the sea” (which is a seafood dish served with an iPod), and eggs and bacon ice cream.
