Pineapple and Pearls, the upcoming restaurant from the Rose's Luxury team, may take reservations, but that convenience will come at a cost: the price tag for dinner will be $250 per person.

The Washington Post reports diners will pay half of the price tag upfront, and the other half the morning of the reservation. The restaurant will have a ticket system and the fee will include everything: tip, taxes, drinks, etc. Cancellations will be refunded as long as they are made within 72 hours. There will be 7-10 courses served, plus drinks.

The price tag will make Pineapple and Pearl's the second-most expensive restaurant in D.C. at face value (but other high-priced tasting menus in D.C. do not include pairings, meaning they could reach similar heights); Chef José Andrés' minibar has a price of $275 per person that does not include pairings. Ticketed restaurant reservations are rare in D.C., but upcoming restaurant The Shaw Bijou plans to have one (price will be upwards of $150 per person).

The most recent opening projection for the restaurant is April 7; the first tickets will go on sale March 14, according to the report. The coffee and sandwich portion of Pineapple and Pearls is already open.
