World's most expensive restaurants! Print
Wednesday, 27 November 2013 13:21

USAToday.com - Fine dining at Michelin-starred restaurants around the world can come at a price. But what you get for those high price tags (which can often be accompanied by sticker shock) are outstanding dining experiences that can take you to a castle in Switzerland or to an underwater culinary experience in the Maldives. From Japan to Europe to the Big Apple, luxe dining menus are often designed tasting courses paired with wines, which substantially adds to the consumer's bottom line.

Japanese restaurants all over the world often charge premium prices for lavish seafood experiences. Masa in New York City, for example, costs $450 per person before beverages, gratuity or tax, all of which can easily take the bill up to roughly $600 per person for its tasting experience. And be sure not to cancel a reservation at Masa — that, too, will cost you (close to $200 per person). Continue

A federal judge has ruled in favor of a music licensing agency that claimed a popular Hampton Beach karaoke bar ripped it off by allowing its patrons to sing its catalog of songs, including "Get Down Tonight" by KC and the Sunshine Band.

Judge Paul Barbadoro accepted a motion for summary judgment Monday against Stacey Janes after owner Charles Hughes refused to respond to the motion. The bar, located at 9 Ocean Blvd., was sued earlier this year by Broadcast Music Inc., known as BMI, alleging seven claims of copyright infringement based on the unauthorized public performances of its music.

The bar is now barred from using the agency's music without a license and may have to pay $750 to $30,000 per song that was played. A damages hearing has been set for 10 a.m. Jan. 16.

BMI attorney Todd A. Sullivan said his client intends to seek $2,500 per violation for a total of $17,500, plus attorney fees. Continue
