    I'm wondering if this is a joke. It's sounds too bizarre to be true. Anyone know if this is a spoof?

    :rofl:

    I'd try the spring rolls. Not as bad as some of the signature creations on Master Chef.

    I'm pretty sure it's a humor piece.

    My friend and I once came up with an idea for an exclusive spa to take advantage of dumb rich ladies. For $500, we would offer an exotic facial treatment guaranteed to leave your skin pink and glowing - basically you would be taken into a room and slapped in the face by hostile Syrian women* until your complexion was rosy.

    *my friend was Syrian so that's where that came from

    Considering some of the "real" places I've seen on tv, it makes you wonder. They had me until I got to the "Satansdottir" sisters, then I figured I'd been had, but then again...

    I've seen places where they eat sushi off of naked people, where diners are blindfolded and eat in total darkness, eating with their hands. There's that dining experience in San Francisco, where they announce via twitter where and when they're going to have dinner and serve weeds and animals they catch in the area, apparently they don't have a permit to do this, so the location keeps changing.

    They forgot the French Laundry in Napa. I believe you need to reserve a spot like 6 months in advance?

    There are places like Rao's where only "la familia" and celebrities can get a table.

    How do they sustain business? Charge out the ***?

    Basically, but celebrities are always lined up for these kind of places, they are always full.

    I guess if they will let you in might as well....

    I was surprised to see a SF restaurant on the list. Wait, on second thought, I am surprised there were not more.

    I don't understand. If you can never get a table, then how does the restaurant make money?
