Figure $130-175 a couple WITHOUT drinks and tip if you choose steak. About $100-125 for non-steak meals. Not a inexpensive dinner but certainly you get what you pay for.

Chopped onions, chopped celery, mushrooms, pimentos, garlic, backend seasoning, bay leaves, and ribeyes cut into cubes. Put it all in a pot with your rice and boil in beef stock. Hope you enjoyed your visit! :)
