These restaurants take dining to the next level

Images projected onto the table during dinner, restaurants in secret locations, the most unconventional ways to present a dish or simply the simple simplicity that makes the dishes sublime. Some restaurants know better than anyone else how to take the culinary experience to a higher level. However, this does come with a price tag. MASTERS puts some of the world's most expensive restaurants on the (menu) map.

5. Masa | New York

Chef Masyoshi Takayama's restaurant is located on the fourth floor of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, New York. He apprenticed with sushi master Sugiyama Toshiaki at the respected Ginza Sushi-ko in Tokyo. The intensive training proved invaluable and he says inspired his intimate relationship with food and dining as an all-encompassing experience. You don't have to look for the menu at Masa; sit back and be surprised by the chefs' creations. Masa is also a very popular place among celebrities, so if you want to spot a few… A dinner at this place costs about €550.

2. Joel Robuchon | Vegas

Founded by the late chef Joel Robuchon, the restaurant that bears his name is the most expensive in Sin City. In 1989, the French chef was voted “Chef of the Century.” Robuchon's credo was: “To make a grand meal, you have to make it simple. To look simple is very complicated. You need the highest quality products, the best equipment and you have to keep the focus on the original flavor of the product.” And of course that comes with a price tag. For a dinner for two you pay around €1200.

1. Sublimotion | Ibiza 

Opened in 2014 in Ibiza at the Hard Rock Hotel, Sublimotion is more than just the world's most expensive restaurant. It's dining in the most futuristic way. For a price of approximately €1500 per person you can enjoy a unique culinary experience for three hours led by chef Paco Roncero. Architects, illusionists and screenwriters joined forces to create an immersive audiovisual experience that accompanies Sublimotion's Sci-Fi cuisine. During dinner, moving images are projected on the table and walls that take you on a journey through different times, places and emotions.
