My god, that's considerably less than the FT's lunch (for three) with Gore Vidal, reported in last Saturday's paper, which was $536! The menu:

Mandarin Grill, Hong Kong

6 oysters 1 x artichoke soup 1 x organic salad 2 x Dover sole 1 x Australian ribeye steak 2 x hazelnut creme brulee asparagus, mashed potato 1 x apple crumble 1 x dry Martini 1 x Bloody Mary 2 x glasses of Sauvignon Blanc 1 x Tsingtao beer 1 x cognac 1 x calvados mineral water coffee

Total: HK$4,273.50 (₤277.93)
