Eight of the Most Expensive Restaurant Dishes in Houston

Feeling flush lately? Cars, watches and fancy shoes are so passé. Flaunt that wealth on something truly, fleetingly enjoyable: Food.

Houston was founded as an oil town, so we have no shortage of affluence in our city. In spite of the fact that it's less oil-centric than it used to be, Houston has held on to some of the wealth that made it a place to see and be seen back in the day. And with that money comes the need for something to spend it on.

Enter foie gras, truffles, steak and seafood. Our restaurants have no shortage of over-the-top dishes that will set you back a pretty penny while simultaneously making you yearn for more. Here's where to find some of the most expensive meals in town.
