Nearing the end of the their 17-day vacation in Hawaii, President Obama and the First Lady had their New Year’s Day dinner at one of the most expensive restaurants in Hawaii – where memberships can run upwards of $500,000.

The Obamas enjoyed a nearly three hour long, 15-course meal that is priced at nearly $300 a head. According to Honolulu Magazine, that doesn’t include the dessert, wine, or tip, and a dinner for two can run $1000 or more.

Vintage Cave’s website describes the restaurant as nothing short of a restaurant for the elite of America.

At Vintage Cave Honolulu, one can enjoy exceptional food and wine at the hands of gifted masters of the culinary arts. ‘Chef’s recommendation’ commands a gravitas guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning palate. Seasoned sommelier’s [sic] conduct the process of pairing wine and food with true finesse and style. Secure in the natural embrace of the cave-like environment, guests are encouraged to relax, ‘hit reset’ and escape the ordinary.”

A lot of people took to Twitter to show their distaste with the Obamas’ dining choice – a restaurant with a membership fee that would take most working Americans more than a decade to earn. Many equated it to royalty:

@ZekeJMiller It is mind-blowing how any American can fail to realize the Royal Obama’s have NOTHING in common with the general public.

@ZekeJMiller Sounds exactly like a place a King would dine at. @tarheeltroll

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with the President forking out $1,000 for a fancy meal, if he is paying for it on his own dime.
