Think you’re spending big money when you go out to eat and spend $100 bucks? Well, in what is quite possibly the largest restaurant tab ever, Roman Abramovich, a Russian billionaire, has you beat. He was in New York City a week or so back and was looking to buy the New Jersey Nets. After meeting with NBA officials he went out with 6 of his friends to Nello’s in New York City. Nello’s is famous for being a celebrity and VIP-wannabe hotspot featuring mediocre to decent Italian food at exorbitant prices.
So how much did Roman spend? Try $47,221.09 on lunch. The tab includes an automatic 20% gratuity of $7,328.20 to which Roman brought the bill up to $52,000 by increasing the tip to 26%. Noteworthy is the $35,000 spent on booze on $18 on a minestrone soup.
I don’t make in one year what this guy spent on LUNCH! Take a look at the receipt, courtesy of WaiterRant.net.
