Good for him... it is people like him that keeps the economy going. I hope the people who received the tip puts the money away for a rainy day.

You can get a full meal at most places for what he spent on just a large water!

If I had that to spend on "lunch" or even dinner, I would find a delicious $150.00-$250.00 meal someplace, and donate the rest. I don't think the food would be any better. I don't get it. Sounds like a waste of money to me.

Please let me know where I can send my two son's college tuition bills. This lunch would cover the rest of their schooling.

The Russian is just trying to "stimulate" the economy. ... A fool and his money ... Didn't Patrick Ewing once say, "we make a lot of money so we spend a lot of money." ... if the guy is worth $1B, this lunch would be equal in percentage terms of someone making $52K per year spending $270.00 on lunch for 6 people. A lot of money for lunch? Yes. But, not overly crazy.

I am among those who value fine food and wine and are willing to pay for it. New York offers many choices for a truly memorable meal at exorbitant prices, but it is simply foolish to pay so dearly for side street pasta and jug wine. I have been to Nello many times over the years. After my last visit a few years ago I swore never to return. That time the wine and service were appalling and the waiter actually argued about the tip! For reasons of convenience, I tried again last week, but found it even worse than before. The food was unremarkable, the portions small, the wine barely drinkable, and the atmosphere absurdly pretentious. My guest agreed. There are so many truly good places within easy walking distance. Leave Nello to people who don't know the difference and are content to be cheated and patronized.

Well good for him. Wonder how many hungry children $47,000 worth of food bank staples would feed?? I'm sure he's so thankful for good old America, land of opportunity. Good for him. Hope all his lunch guests were well fed & said a prayer for all the people who would go to bed with empty stomachs across the country that night.

Looks like there were three wine orders totalling $35K - 3 La Tache Romanee, 2 Chateau Petrus and 2 Cristal Rose. I guess the rich have always spent huge sums on themselves, we just haven't been privy to the details of their obscenely self-satisfying lives before now.
