In case you missed it, yesterday's Sun-Times story about the high living priest Mark Sorvillo, busted for stealing 200-large from St. Margaret Mary parish coffers, was a collection basket of icky, sticky details about where the money went. Aside from the plane, opera, and theater tickets, the hotel rooms, the shopping trips to Tiffany's and Bernardaud, and the married male stripper, the once 400-pound Sorvillo spent almost $15,000 at Binny's, over $1,500 on candy from Fannie May, and thousands more on meals at high end restos like Blackbird, Gibson's, and Les Nomades and, less impressively, at Giordano's and Maggiano's.

But the really astounding bit of gastronomic audacity was that in August 2004--the year after Sorvillo had gastric bypass surgery--he dropped more than $1,500 over two days at New York's Jean-Georges and Le Bernardin. No word on whether he asked for doggie bags.
