At $495 per person, this New Year’s Eve menu is one of the priciest dinners in Dallas

This New Year’s Eve, you could eat some of the finest food in the world and never leave Dallas. But it’ll cost you.

The price for New Year’s Eve dinner at Dallas restaurant Tango Room is $495 per person. That includes eight courses of fine food like uni, caviar and Wagyu. It also includes two drinks but no wine pairings; those are an extra $350 per person. Or, big spenders can order wine by the bottle.

Servers at this Design District restaurant will also offer the option of a taste of Louis XIII Cognac tableside. It’s $145 for a half ounce, $290 for 1 ounce, or $575 for 2 ounces. This Cognac is “widely considered the greatest, most complex expression of Cognac available today,” a 2021 Forbes article says. The original retail price is $16,000 per bottle, according to Wine Enthusiast, but prices can fluctuate from $2,500 and $200,000.

… It can’t hurt to look at the menu, am I right?

The two drinks in the $495 price tag are a sweet and bitter Sbagliato cocktail as an aperitif and a Champagne toast of Piper-Heidsieck Rosé. Those who tack on the $350 wine pairing will taste six wines. A highlight might be the 2004 Vieux Château Certan from the Pomerol region of Bourdeaux, France, which would otherwise cost $125 per glass.

Tango Room is a Headington Companies restaurant that moved into the restaurant previously occupied by FT33, off of Oak Lawn Avenue in the Dallas Design District. It’s a secluded supper club with just 12 tables.

Reservations are required on New Year’s Eve. And, for those who can afford this dinner, we have one more tip: Gratuity and tax are not included.

Tango Room is at 1617 Hi Line Drive, Dallas.
