Title: $25,000 dessert? U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
Post by: KickTheBobo on November 08, 2007, 10:05:11 AM
thank the lord for news stories like this. and just think, I was just wondering about our falling dollar and Jay-Z's Euro flashing (thx for the heads up Chris L.).

bah. we're doing just fine.

I wonder if this was the same one that David Cross talked about in his stand up.

I not only don't belong in this world, I downright hate it.

For that kind of money, I better be able to take home the diamond encrusted pimp cup as well as the gold spoon. And that spoon better be solid gold, not gold plated, because seriously.

Do you think they will offer it for $25 if you agree to eat it out of a paper cup with a plastic spork? And what's the recommended pairing? Goldschl├Ąger? If so, I don't think most teenage girls can afford this dessert.

"I wouldn't be surprised if soon we get a call from a Middle Eastern prince or Shah willing to give something sweet to his many wives on his next trip to the city," Bruce said.


----Just as I suspected!  It's Shah bait!

Wake me when someone makes the $15,000 falafel.

Sounds nummy. Containing only the finest tahini, cucumbers, and a 2 carat diamond.

Edible gold? That's awful and sickening. At least the 1000 dollar bagel money goes to charity.  I've eaten at Serendipity 3 a few times. It's really not that wonderful, and this just gives me more incentive never to set foot in there again.

Norma's has a $1000 lobster frittata made with Sevruga caviar. They also have a $100 version. This does not stop me from eating there, as the food is fucking delicious. I've never spent more than $40 for breakfast there, though, so I can't comment on the crazy expensive omelette. I will tell you to order the hot chocolate, though, as it is made from melted Valrhona chocolate bars. Also, try the churros and the crispy french toast and also the belgian waffle with LOTS of Devonshire cream. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

What do they do to trim $900 off the price?

I hope that was at a fundraiser for a good charity.

dammit, I dumped the pictures off of my wife's camera this weekend and found some pictures of us living it up at Serendipity III from this summer.  I had the relatively modestly priced frozen hot chocolate and she had a raspberry sundae.

One thing I will say for the place: we had to wait 45 minutes (people behind us were over two hours wait), but it was Fleet week and they had two sets of four come in.  They seated them immediately and comped each person three large dessert items (it was comical how much shit they had).  I know it's not much in the face of this ridiculous sundae, but I was impressed.

No, it was just from a hot dog cart.

That sounds like a new and unfamiliar euphemism and it scares me.

 Yet it scared $450 out of your wallet.

I assumed a dirty-water dog was one from that vat of liquid in the vendor's cart.

Am I being too literal again?

Ha! The $25,000 price tag is slightly more reasonable now that I learned you get to keep the diamond and gold bracelet. It should really be platinum, though, at that price. Srsly.
