San Pellegrino's list of the 50 best restaurants in the world was released earlier this week, and Reuters turned it into a graph comparing them to the prices of their tasting menu. Life has taught us that the most expensive things aren't always the best, and the graph reinforces this lesson. According to writer Felix Salmon, the list represents "a group of expensive restaurants, charging expensive-restaurant prices, but whose position on this list is entirely unrelated to the amount that they charge."

We'd encourage people to get what they pay for, especially at the world's finest of restaurants. Or, simply take it down a notch and get more bang for your buck somewhere else.
