Question: If you were to cook this, what is your best price deal for all ingredients? Does it worth making it at home or go at the restaurant?

I suppose the high price tag on this dish in restaurants has more to do with the procedure of making it perfect. My question is different: Which Beef Wellington would win in a match between Jamie Oliver's and Gordon Ramsay's? :)

My father ran country club restaurants for a long time so I got pretty familiar with the pricing. Very high-end restaurants can charge a lot and you could, if you had the skills, reproduce the dish more cheaply at home. Most restaurants make the majority of their profits from drinks. The clubs my dad ran broke even on food (at best) but made huge profits on alcohol. Even soda is profitable to a restaurant. Desserts also have a high markup.
