Feeling a little fancy? You might want to make a stop at this Illinois joint.

Full disclosure, this list from Delish doesn't do a fantastic job of explaining whether or not they are referring to the restaurant itself or the specific food item they are highlighting.

Either way, I found it interesting because one of the most expensive "dishes" you'll find on the list can be had elsewhere for much much cheaper.

So Delish posted the 40 Most Expensive Restaurants in America and yep, two of them are in Illinois.

Well, at least they used to be. The first was the Bellemore, once located in Chicago and it was the home to a $59 Oyster Pie.

This savory pie found at Chicago’s Bellemore consists of an oyster custard topped with crème fraîche, apples, and Ossetra caviar—some of the world’s finest.

I'm referring to this in the past tense because the Bellemore closed in 2021, so tsk tsk Delish.

The other is still open despite the fact they want $2500 for a tin of popcorn. It's called Billion Dollar Popcorn and you can only get it at Berco's Popcorn.

Delish:

 Made with organic sugar, Vermont Creamery butter, Nielsen Massey Bourbon Vanilla, the most expensive salt in the world from The Danish island of Laeso, and 23-karat gold flakes, this popcorn isn’t something you’ll grab by the handful. If you want to taste Berco’s luxurious treat but can’t commit to spending two month’s rent, a reasonable $5 will get you a sample.

Do you eat this stuff or just stare in wonder and amazement? Sounds like edible jewelry to me.
