I guess what I would be referring to are the sorts of places with tasting/prix fixe menus. Examples in Chicago that I like would be Spiaggia, North Pond, Charlie Trotter's, and Cite'. Places with a sort of different vibe than a steakhouse even if they're not as *expensive*.
IJJ, $140 per semester or something along those lines. Nothing too extravagant imo.
I got that you're not looking right now. I'm trying to figure out how pompous you are. Food doesn't have to cost $100+ per plate to be high-end. We have plenty of high-end trendy places. Not as many as NYC...sure. But the cost is a function of what the market will tolerate, not the quality. I'm not sure how you can assess how high-end the food is anywhere without having eaten there.
You may have meant fancy. That's different than high-end. And, we have some of those as well. A word of advice, be careful how you come off. Unlike HYS, some of your classmates will never have eaten in a place that's $50 a plate. A large number of them won't be frequenting those places when they graduate and do PI. Michigan isn't one of those kinds of schools. Just some friendly advice.
