Chef's auction sets dinner tab at $36,750

- +

An Asian gourmet dished out $36,750 at a New York auction to have dinner for four with famed chef Ferran Adria. 

Spanish star chef Ferran Adria, of the award-winning restaurant elBulli, poses with signed wine bottles from the restaurant's wine cellar in New York on April 25, 2013. Adria decided to permanently close his restaurant and put the entire contents of elBulli's wine cellar up for auction. An Asian gourmet splashed out $36,750 at the New York auction to have dinner for four with Adria.

The dizzy tab contributed to a $913,605 sale at Sotheby's late Friday that was based on the revolutionary Catalan cook's stellar wine collection, which he sold along with kitchen gear, two years after shuttering his Michelin three-star elBulli restaurant near Barcelona.
