How much would you pay for a gourmet meal? According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s most expensive hamburger costs $5,000! If that seems extravagant to you, it’s actually pocket-change when compared with the most expensive dinner menu on offer in Singapore.
According to a Forbes report, World of Diamonds – the makers of The Jane Seymour Vivid Blue Diamond Ring – are organising a special $2 million dining experience for two, which includes a luxurious journey on air, land and sea, culminating with a dinner at Ce’ La Vi, in Singapore. The cherry on top? Owning the The Jane Seymour Vivid Blue diamond ring as well.
“This is the most expensive dining experience in the world, and the most lavish one possible,” Karan Tilani, Director, World of Diamonds Group, was quoted as saying. “As a diamond mining group, we recognize that Ce’ La Vi is a diamond in the sky. [We expect] the response will be beyond overwhelming, but it’s only two diners who will eventually have the privilege.”
The whole experience is supposed to last for 8 hours, and includes 10,000 fresh roses, an 18-course meal, vintage wines and the 2.08-carat blue diamond ring, of course. The retreat is supposed to start with a 45-minute helicopter ride over Singapore, then a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce drive, followed by a luxury cruise, after which the couple will dine at the Ce’ La Vi rooftop restaurant of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
If your’re wondering what the menu of such an extravagant meal would entail, then here you are: “New Zealand Langoustine, Fresh Belon Oyster with champagne foam, Almas Caviar, Lamb Sweetbread, Air-Flown Alaska Wild Salmon, Slow Cooked Pigeon, and Apple-Wood Grilled Mishima Sirloin. Paired with the menu are 44- and 55-year-old vintage wines, 1988 Salon ‘S’ champagne, 2008 Domaine Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru , and a host of other world-class champagnes and bruts” reports Forbes.
To make it a truly personalised experience, even the furniture will be custom-made, and to finish the night with a flourish, fireworks will accompany a Louis XIII de Rémy Martin cognac when the ring is presented.
Now, apart from the fact that the ring won’t be surprise, everything else does seem to warrant a $2 million price tag, does it not?
