1 000-pound menu!

A restaurant in Britain has devised a 1 000-pound menu for high-flyers to eat into their substantial bonuses.

Vivat Bacchus an 80-seater fine dining restaurant in the heart of Farringdon has already taken at least half a dozen bookings for the 1 000-pound meal since it began taking reservations.

"Many of them work in the City and often ask for something unique during bonus season," co-owner Neleen Strauss was quoted as saying, adding that some people were unconcerned despite fears for the state of the world economy.

"I have found over the years when bad news begins to circulate around the stock market, our City customers never fully lose their appetites," she said.

The menu includes royal Seruga caviar, fresh Bahama rock lobster linguini, grilled Wagyu fillet steak, a 15-variety cheese board and chocolate soufflé with clotted cream.

Each course is washed down with its own glass of wine, including Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Chateau D'Yquem, although diners can upgrade their vintages at extra cost straight from the very expansive cellar.

Would you pay a £1 000 (approximately R14 000) for a dinner?
