25 Most Expensive Restaurants in America (7 are in or within driving distance of San Francisco)

To go along with our recent article on the outrageous rising cost of Apartments in SFย It only makes sense that SF should have some high-priced restaurants as well. According to BUNDLE, the top 25 are:

The French Laundry – Yountville, CA

Michael Mina – San Francisco
Alinea – Chicago
Charlie Trotters – Chicago

Coi – San Francisco
Le Grenouille – New York City
Baume Restaurant – Palo Alto, CA
Del Posto – New York City

Northern California has quite a strong showing with 7 of the top 25! Here is how it breaks down:

New York: 8
San Francisco (Northern California): 7
Chicago: 6
DC: 2
LA: 1
San Diego: 1

I am a little surprised not to see Miami, Las Vegas or at least another city represented.
