Million-Dollar Meals

I know you've been wondering, as I have, exactly what a few million bucks buys you these days. Well, for one thing, it gets you a high-concept, modern, Italian restaurant like Sopra (110 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561-274-7077), which after a long delay has finally opened its costly doors. It gets you a chef like Glen Manfra, who hails from the popular Amici in Palm Beach. It gets you national notice in trade magazines like Nation's Restaurant News, which means that the industry is finally beginning to recognize Delray as a dining destination. But does it get you enough customers to recoup in these lean times? For another million, I just might give you the answer.
