Masa (New York City)-$595 Per Person
Masa Takayama, an exceptionally expensive sushi emporium in Manhattan’s Time Warner Center offers you a lifetime experience as much as it offers a fancy and delightful meal. Owner of Masa, Chef Masayoshi Takayama from Japan opened the restaurant in 2004. And since then the restaurant has been offering an excellent meal that is sure to be unforgotten.
And soon as you enter the restaurant you’ll discover why it is the most expensive restaurant in the world. Just take a bite of finely sliced fatty Bluefin tuna tartare covered in an osetra caviar and you’ll figure out why it cost a price of $595 for each head eating in this restaurant. But somehow the price justifies the meal because the luxurious ingredients such as toro, white winter truffles and caviar don’t come in cheap.
It’s fascinating that Masa doesn’t come with the regular menu for its customers. While the diners are seated, the chef prepares the fine meal and presents it to the customer right away from the kitchen.
New York Masa has a lovely aura and calm atmosphere, possibly it’s the shock of $600 per person bill excluding tax, tip or beverages that the diners will get after their meal.
