Treasure Chest at Three Dots and a Dash

When you really want to ball out, head straight to Three Dots and a Dash and order the Treasure Chest. It’s a mixture of rare rums, pineapple, guava, passionfruit and lemon packed inside a treasure chest that’s oozing with dry ice, which creates a foggy effect. To top it off, the large-format cocktail is served with a bottle of Dom Perignon. The whole thing rings up at $385, but it serves six to eight, which means it’s only $50-ish per person. Doable, right?
