I have no problem flying for a meal. Hopped a transatlantic flight last year for Ferran Adria. But I’m torn about this one, a Thursday night in July in Vegas. It’s a good deal if you’re interested, I’m on the fence leaning against.
Still, it’s a value for the meal itself and it’s an experience. Not El Bulli in my book, but an experience nonetheless.
