For lovers with unlimited funds, Sydney has the ultimate Valentine's Day extravagance. At Bistro Remy in the Langham Hotel, diners can enjoy two "freshly shucked" oysters—each adorned with one "Australian South Sea pearl"—for the low, low, price of only $3,200 AUD. That's nearly $2,450 USD, for a couple of shellfish which typically go for $4.50 AUD each, sans pearl. Of course, you're not going out to eat this dish solo, so really you're dropping a few grand to slurp one very costly oyster. Oh, and don't swallow the pearl.
Located in Sydney's Central Business District, Bistro Remy is headed up by Executive Chef Dave Whitting, who had a special vision for this "romantic" offering.
