Hey, I don’t set the prices for these celebrity chef dinners, I just report them. Moments after I posted about the dinner at Stephan Pyles, this little diddy dropped into my inbox:
Who in the hell can afford to pay $175 for a dinner these days. That is $350 for a couple. That is just crazy. People are losing their homes and starving all over the world. It just makes me sick. I can’t even afford a babysitter to go out and people are going on like there is no tomorrow.
Hmm. Sick is a little strong and there may not be a tomorrow which is all the more reason to either find a cheap babysitter or take the rugrat with you the next time you go out to eat. I suppose it is time for the Dish Nation to help this poor gal find some cheap eats. I, for one, had a nice night out at Dunston’s last night: a six-ounce, bacon-wrapped Prime tenderloin with an all-you-can-eat salad bar and a vegetable for around $18.
