$12,000 Knish: For the Tasteless Über Rich
There is a lot of oneupmanship in the realm of ridiculously expensive food. A while back I posted about the $1000 Grand Opulence Ice Cream Sundae. You would have to pay me $12,000 to eat this next concoction concepted for the tasteless Über rich. It's called a Knish, and it consists of:
Osetra, Sevruga and Beluga caviars, white alba truffles, 24k edible gold leaf, lobster, Kobe tartar, a Kobe burger, a Kobe hot dog, an ostrich egg, two kinds of foie gras - duck and goose, and a moose snout and drizzled with 100 yr old balsamic vinegar and doused with with Louis XIII Cognac and flambéed.To get your hands on a Knish, you will have to fork out $12,000 cash 48 hours in advance.
At least the expensive sundae probably tastes good.
*04/27/08: Trendhunter reports that the repulsive knish is a fake.
More from the press release:
On serving, the whole is doused liberally with Louis XIII Cognac and flambeed, so the attention of everyone in the restaurant will be drawn to the special person who ordered it. Finally, tableside, an American Apparel model who has eaten nothing but sushi personally prepared by Chef Masa and drank only Chateau Petrus for the previous 24 hours takes a dump on it.Funny.
Please note the $12,000 Knish must be ordered and paid for 48 hrs in advance. In cash.
We are sure that the $12,000 Knish will bring NYC douchebag cuisine to new heights of douchebaggery. Until next week, when some douchebaggier restaurant manages to top it.
