$910 might seem like a steep price for a solo diner to attend three dinners. For a typical Greenville weekend, you’d be hard-pressed to spend that much on your own food and drink and come out alive. But in this case, that price tag is a bargain.

The dollar amount represents the chance during euphoria to meet five Michelin-starred chefs from three cities across the United States and partake of the culinary achievements that earned them those combined eight coveted stars. So what would it cost to dine in all five of their restaurants, including your necessary airfare and hotel accommodations?
