Ever notice that what a man gets out of an expensive restaurant is different than what a woman does? Whan a man goes to an expensive restaurant you hear him talk about the great food, or wine selection, or even the great service. When a woman talks about it it's about how fancy it is and how all the fancy people are there and so on. The only reason the woman gives a shit about a fancy restaurant is that it's expensive and that she can be seen going there and then brag to all the other hens at work on Monday that her new man took her there.

Girls are probably the most competitive creatures ever. They are always trying to out do each other and brag to their friends.

funny you should mention that. I see this one chick from time to time. I got tired of her bullshit attitude, and now I always make her pay her own way. I figured that after the first time I did it she'd be gone, but she keeps calling.

All about looks/perception over substance.

My ex-wife would get insanely excited about limos. Everytime she saw one on the road she'd get excited and start wondering "who's inside".

Everytime I'd look at her and say "Somebody that's got $50 bucks an hour to rent one."

I can't *begin* to tell you how pissed she'd get when I pointed that simple fact out.

So what?....If the dude took the girl there then the dude have to bear the consequence. It's his call.
If he want to impress the girl then so be it.


You don't like it?...Take her to McDonald.....Then hear something else.

Edited to say: You are supposed to be the gentlemen....Pay it.

my wife is a pastry chef in new york at a 3 star restaurant. when we go out it is a TREAT for both of us. we look at how good is the food, service, how the deserts are done. yeah, the wine is good but the mark-up on drinks are 100%. where do we go the most, pizza and beer at a great family place right outside of trenton.
be well

My wife appreciates the service, atmosphere, food, and whatnot at nice restaurants - as long as she doesn't know what it's costing. She'll cheerfully eat the $21 appetizer, enjoy the $100 champagne and the $60 wine with dinner, the $40 entree, the $9 dessert, et c. et c. if the "guest" menus don't have prices. If she sees what it costs, she agonizes between what she wants - or what looks interesting - and the second-cheapest item on the menu. She wants cheap champagne and house chablis by the glass.

I find out what it going to cost before I go, and if I can't afford to enjoy myself with abandon, I go somewhere else.

Let me clarify a bit.

I have no problem paying $100-$200 for dinner for two from time to time, assuming that it's good food, there are no screaming babies near me, and the company is appreciative of not only the money spent but the quality of the food and drink. That's whether it's an old friend in from out of town, or a date.

I couldn't care less what the food costs as long as it's good and they provide good service Unfortunately it just seems that women are generally unapreciative of the quality of the food, and are more concerned with seeing and being seen. But then, maybe that's just the bloodsucking South Florida women.

Ya! BBQ at your place for them for the first date. Steak, baked potato, salad and beer/wine. If they enjoy the food and clear their plate, then they might be worthy of a restaraunt dinner date.

I think it's probably an age/background thing. Some people just don't know how to act.
Link Posted: 9/18/2004 6:08:48 PM EST
It's really about food when I go to reataurants. Obseqious service is expected if everyone's dinner is $30 or more.

There's one expensive restaurant I've gone to three times, all the food had a diesel-like taste to it, no matter what dish I ordered. I gave them a chance, never going there again.
Link Posted: 9/18/2004 6:09:46 PM EST
Nobody I know outside of my immediate family actually seems to care about how food tastes, so long as it isn't crap. Which explains why we eat at places like Morton's of Chicago and Ruth's Chris and Pizzeria Paradiso, and they eat at Outback, McDonald's, and Pizza Hut. Even if it were gilt up like a 1920's theater and had marble stalls in the bathroom, Burger King would still be a place we only eat at when it's 10:00 PM and we're at Exit 240 in the middle of nowhere.

I doubt, however, that any date I could get would complain about a meal made by me, though, given as I'm a pretty damn good cook. It's all the Cajun and German blood in me, I think.

For some people, it's possible to have the dinner AND buy the ammo

Incidentally if I eat at home all week, that's one week's worth of groceries, not one month. I honestly can't figure out how people spend $100 for an entire month's worth of food.

I'm not entirely sure that that qualifies as a categorical proposition, but I do suggest that Col. Klink put $300 aside, find an agreeable companion, and head for a top-drawer restaurant. It's not an every day - or even necessarily every month or year - thing, but it is very pleasant, and the right restaurant will make it clear that there are meals worth $100 or more a head. The raw material probably isn't worth 8% of that, but the total product/experience can be.

For two people its quite easy, a kick ass plate of sushi or super hi grade itialian grub for 2 can easily run $75 thats not including the booze either.

also as FLAL1A said its not somthing you do every weekend either. My usual weekend meal for two costs around $40

+1. If I go anywhere that's $35-50 an entree, I expected to be treated like a king. I can cook pretty well so I don't go for the food, although at that price, it better be done right (e.g., when I want my steak medium rare, it should be that way).

I like a nice martini.
With it, I like a few oysters. Maybe a couple of Kumumotos, a Malpaque or two, whatever.
A Crab Cake is nice, too.
Perhaps a dry aged Porterhouse, or a sliced duck breast. A Veal Chop. A Fresh Sea Bass.
A bottle of Barolo.
Desert, coffee.

Is it worth $200?

Sometimes.

Depends on your perspective.

don't get me wrong, I was in college once and ate pasta for dinner 5 nights a week, with taco bell the other 2. I just couldn't do it again now. Hell even my last year in college the first part of my budget went to food, and then everything else. I couldn't take eating like that anymore.

Come see me (bring a coat & tie). I'll treat you to a $200+ meal for three (or a higher per-person rate) and take you to the range.

Sometimes it's fun to treat your Lady an expensive place.

A couple of times a year I take mine to one ($80+/per for the "Chefs" dinner) and she glows for about a week afterward.

It's all cool. Yeah, We pull-up in a pick-up truck and I DOUBTLESSLY make less money annually than the guy who's seating us but SHE gets a thrill out of it and THAT'S why I'M there I have to be reminded every time we go what fork to use for what and I usually finish each course about an HOUR before the next one comes but hearin' her talk about it on the phone to her sisters and friends afterward gives me a warm fuzzy.
