What Sticker Shock Looks Like in Italian

Blogdolcevita reports that a businessman dining on a truffle-themed meal at Cracco-Peck in Milan last weekend refused to pay when presented with an unexpectedly high check. The amount? 4,140 Euro...that's over $5,000 US.

Cracco-Peck has earned two Michelin stars for what is considered by the Italiani to be controversially innovative food in a still very traditional city. A signature dish is pasta with sea urchins and coffee.

Take that, Grant Achatz.
