Big money to spend! Metro Detroit

I'd love a tapas style meal, that'd be a home run for me.

Last really good meal I splurged on was in Cambridge, MA at Craigie on the Main, which does an amazing chef's sampler.

Really? Could you explain further?

I don't really have a target cuisine. Primarily just trying to get the finest meal and restaurant experience I can buy for $300. Lark, Capital, and all the recommendations all seem like they are in the same general class of dining in metro detroit.

What would you pick out of that 5?

There will be 4 of us at the meal, but each of the other 3 must contribute up to $100 toward my meal, along with whatever their meal costs. Good idea about calling ahead to get something special set up.

Big money to spend! Metro Detroit

Having won a bet with some friends, they now owe me dinner at a restaurant of my choice, with the budget for my meal up to $300. This is in Metro Detroit, which should basically mean I can eat where ever I want, whatever I want, with generous appetizers, cocktails, wine, etc.

So what I'm looking for, where in Detroit can I get the finest meal when cost is not a consideration. Actually it is a consideration, how can I maximize my spending so that the meal is both high quality and no holds barred extravagant?

Strangely enough, I get two similar meals like this in the near future, the other one due to an award from my company. I chose Coach Ensignia for that meal.

So any ideas? I'm toying with the Lark, and Capital Grille.
