We’ve all splurged on the occasional Porterhouse steak, sushi Omakase or seasonal tasting menu, but there’s another level of restaurant service that’s a bit more ostentatious. Feast your eyes on some of the most ludicrous, extravagant and expensive orders out there. Just remember, a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the credit card statement…
Le Burger Extravagant at Serendipity 3 in New York City Le Burger Extravagant is so posh, its no wonder the name is in French. It’s got a white truffle butter-infused Kobe beef patty, aged cheddar, smoked sea salt, a fried quail egg, a blini and a generous helping of shaved black truffles. It’s even stuck with a diamond-and-gold toothpick. And you’re stuck too—with the bill. Price tag: $295
Decadence D’or Cupcake at Sweet Surrender in Las Vegas Decadence is an understatement; this cupcake is made with chocolate from the ultra-rare Porcelana Criollo bean of Venezuela and is topped with Tahitian Gold vanilla caviar and edible gold flakes. It comes with a side of Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac, a hand-bowl Fleur-de-Lis made of colored sugar, and the shame of having just spent a fortune on dessert. Price tag: $750
The Pizza at Nino’s Positano in New York City Though Nino’s serves up all types of traditional Italian-American pizzas and Italian fare, it’s their thousand-dollah pie that we’ve got our eye on. It comes topped with lobster tails and four types of caviar. Sadly, they don’t sell it by the slice. Price tag: $1,000
The Bagel at New York’s Westin Hotel in New York City White truffles exclusively from the forest floor of Alba, Italy are used to create the cream cheese spread on this breakfast treat. Add a goji berry-infused Riesling wine jam, top with gold flakes, and you’ve got yourself into delicious, delicious debt. Price tag: $1,000
The Diamond Martini at the Algonquin Hotel in New York City Seventy-two hours advance notice and a visit to the hotel’s jeweler to pre-select the diamond are necessary for this over-the-top spirit. Hotel officials say the “Martini on the rock” is a perfect way to propose marriage. We say that depends how frugal your girlfriend is. Or, you know, how hot. Price tag: $10,000
Strawberries Arnaud at Arnaud’s in New Orleans Forget the 1 percent; this is the dessert of the .1 percent. A 7.09 carat (according to the price tag we believe this to be a lot of carats) pink diamond accompanies a dish of red wine, port and citrus-macerated strawberries with French vanilla ice cream. Or you can just get the diamond-less version for $8.25. Price tag: $3.95 million
Masa Toro with Caviar Roll at Bar Masa in New York City and Las Vegas The Masa Toro Caviar Roll features eight large sushi pieces with fatty ‘Toro’ tuna and a generous dollop of pricey caviar. In Vegas, the roll is complemented with buttery brioche. Price tag: $240
The California Capitol City Dawg at Capitol Dawg in Sacramento This three-quarter-pound beef frank was lovingly nestled in an herbed focaccia roll toasted with white truffle butter, then topped with mustard, garlic and herb mayo, baby greens, applewood bacon, sautéed shallots, tomato, dried cranberries, pepper, basil olive oil, a fruity balsamic vinaigrette and a $200-per-pound Swedish moose cheese. Say it with me now: Swedish moose cheese. Price tag: $145.49
The Mac and Cheese at Mélisse in Santa Monica White truffle froth, brown butter and aged Parmesan cheese envelop a small portion of delicately cooked tagliatelle pasta for a price equivalent to around one hundred boxes of Kraft. Fair deal. Price tag: $115-$130
The Lobster Frittata at Norma in New York City Why get an $8 cheddar and bacon omelet at the diner when you can get one for a zillion percent markup with lobster claws and a ludicrous 10-ounce serving of Sevruga caviar? If you can’t justify shelling out $1,000 for breakfast, relax: Norma offers a version with just one ounce of the rare roe for $100. Price tag: $1,000
