A typical steak dinner between two people can cost around $100 if not more, but that apparently wasn’t enough for two people who went on a date at a hot new restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia.
One woman shared her extravagant restaurant experience on TikTok, but now users are wondering whether cost matters during a fun night out, or if she was just using him for a free meal.
Whether you’re meeting someone for the first time or going on a date with something you’re in a long-term relationship with, who doesn’t love to spend an evening being swept off their feet?
Everyone has their own personal preference when it comes to the “perfect” date, but when you and your significant other spend a night out on the town, is there a budget in place or is your credit card limitless? That’s the mentality one woman in Atlanta had during a date.
User @khaparisdior recently shared on TikTok her experience of going on a date with a man who wanted to take her out on an unforgettable night. The video has so far received over 260,000 views and 36,000 likes, and what’s most unforgettable about it is the final number on their restaurant bill.
She captions the beginning of the TikTok with “Y’all have to try out this new restaurant in Atlanta Georgia!”
The restaurant @khaparisdior and her date go to is called Steak Market in Atlanta. The restaurant calls itself “a new-age steakhouse taking the fine dining experience to new territory…with traditional qualities and an extravagant atmosphere” and boasts their unique experience “will captivate more than just the steak lovers.”
The TikTok begins with a panoramic view of the restaurant, followed by a deep dive into several of its “signature” dishes.
The Dining Experience
So what kind of culinary feast awaited @khaparisdior and her Prince Charming? We hope you’re hungry.
Many of the menu items come with a theatrical presentation, and the couple first dines on Alaskan king crab legs with fresh-squeezed lemon. But the shining jewel of the feast is a medium-rare Japanese wagyu steak coated in 24-karat edible gold, which she calls “the best steak I’ve ever had.”
What’s Dinner Without Dessert?
The menu also features several other unique foods and drink items which are sure to cost a pretty penny. @khaparisdior tries a “signature” cocktail that emits a liquid nitrogen fog and a popsicle that’s made of the same liquor.
And because no dinner is complete without dessert, the lovebirds are then served an ice cream sundae featuring three flavors of ice cream, two Snickers bars, and to top it off, is served in a giant martini glass.
“Make His Pockets Hurt”
The final part of the TikTok is a close-up view of the bill, and just a warning, it’s not for the faint of heart. Items such as the Alaskan king crab legs, the edible gold-wrapped steak, and the giant sundae cost $48, $380, and $65 respectively. Including tax and an automatic 18 percent gratuity, the total price comes to a whopping $741.53.
“Make his pockets hurt,” the caption near the end of the video reads.
Many users who watched @khaparisdior’s video thought the video of her date looked like an enjoyable experience for the couple. Others said that they want to check out the restaurant for themselves while @khaparisdior and others defended the date by saying that as long as she had fun, who cares about the price.
“Some of you are all are haters and do not have anything nice to say. This looks fun girl! I’m adding it to my list to check out!” one user commented.
Doing It For Social Media Points
Many users weren’t so positive about the date, however. While many users thought the theatrics of the restaurant itself was as over-the-top as the prices, others thought that @khaparisdior was only using this date in order to get attention on social media and felt poorly for the man who had to foot the bill. Another user called her a “gold digger”.
“Having money doesn’t mean you have taste lmao. Y’all trying so hard to look rich and it’s pathetic,” one user wrote.
