Dancing with the Stars -- $70,000 of Food Porn for Everyone ... Except Champs Maksim and Meryl

EXCLUSIVE
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis from "Dancing with the Stars" are huge losers ... 'cause even though they won the disco ball thingy ... they missed out on a ridiculously over-the-top feast at the wrap party.

After the finale, 'DWTS' threw the bash featuring a $70K menu designed by a bunch of TV chefs --  from "MasterChef" and "Top Chef." Some of the gut-busting highlights included:  

-- Beef cheeks over pureed cauliflower
-- Bacon grilled cheese served w/ chilled heirloom roasted red & yellow tomato soup
-- Louisiana pan fried chicken
-- Andouille and sausage gumbo w/ cornbread

Go ahead and drool through the gallery ... which includes the kick ass dessert -- a dance floor made of 200 chocolate and strawberry infused cupcakes, all whipped up by Blendtec. 

Champs Meryl and Maksim had to hop a plane to NYC right after the show, so ... yeah. Big mistake. Huge.
