"Upscale dining hit hardest in recession... For five years, Jonathan Fyhrie of Six Tables in Boca Raton charged diners a flat $90 per person. Six courses. Choice of six entrees. Port with the cheese course.  Those days are over. On Oct. 1, Fyhrie lowered the price to $55 and now serves four courses. Gone is the amuse-bouche he'd send out to start the meal. Gone is the sorbet, the cheese course and the port."
