Conundrum

When I get my time machine, will I be able to go to a very expensive restaurant, eat something outlandish like well-done filet of Kobe beef served with truffle butter and monkey brains then use my time machine to go back to a point before the meal with a full belly and thus skip out on the check? The restaurant isn't out because I have not yet eaten. My belly is full because I have. 

Maybe someone more versed in time travel and ethics can help me out.

Going back with the full belly begs causality.
If you don't order the steak, you get hungry again.
It's the law.
