When you are paying $12 for a glass of water, then you are spending money just for the privalege of overpaying. Its a big "look how rich I am!", on par with the whole 'lighting a cigarette with $100 bill' cliche.

He can spend his money on what he wants, but something about this mentality really annoys me.

Southampton is on Long Island silly! I know because I live here. Although if he really wants to stimulate the economy he should spend his money elsewhere as Southampton has enough money circulating in it! Oh, and those ARE accurate prices for Nello menu items.

Is it weird that this isn't shocking to me? If you take out the extremely rare and expensive items, the prices aren't bad for what you get. They pay to be and be seen. That's why you eat off of Madison Ave. Truffles are always expensive because they are not native to this area and you can't just grow them. They have to be found and shipped in a short amount of time. Is it a day?
