New York, Paris, Shanghai, California and Las Vegas are some of the cities that are home to the most expensive restaurants in the world.

However, at least ten establishments overcame the challenges and are the most expensive restaurants in the world. Each of these businesses is run by world-renowned chefs and some of them hold the three Michelin stars. In addition, they have been in charge of offering something more than exquisite dishes. Some of these restaurants have decided to include cutting-edge tools to position themselves as one of a kind. Without neglecting the flavor and the first level service, these establishments offer sound experiences and virtual reality to create a true gastronomic performance.
