A cocktail or a car payment? You decide.
There is no doubt at all that Miami is an in-your-face, live-for-the-moment kind of town.

We haven't conducted a scientific research study yet, but we'd bet good money that out of every city in the world, we rank pretty high in the amount of Ferraris, designer handbags, designer dogs, and designer bodies per capita.

Maybe it's the weather..maybe it's all the neon and celebrities, but we sure do like our bling.

So bring on the gilt, the glam, the opulence. Here are the five most extravagant dishes in Miami that would have made Marie Antoinette herself proud.

5. Boarnie Madoff's Bucket of Bones at Barton G.
When we think of extravagance, we think of the movers and shakers of Wall Street. Men like Gordon Gecko and Bernie Madoff who threw money around like it was mere paper...until they were caught. This bucket holds beef and pork ribs, lamb chops, and chicken drumettes -- because why would one protein do when you can have them all? Served with creamy gorgonzola and cucumber chutney, this is a snack worthy of a master of the universe ($24).
