The World’s Most Expensive Pasta
Bice, an Italian restaurant in midtown Manhattan, is celebrating 25 years in business by launching a pasta dish priced at $2,013.
The homemade tagliolini is made of fresh ingredients such as wild mushrooms and topped with two pounds of fresh Maine lobster and one ounce of black truffle.
Chef Silverio Chavez says what makes the dish even more unique is the fact that it comes served on a gold leaf platter designed by fashion designer Gianni Versace.
Diners are allowed to take the plate – which bears Versace’s signature along with the restaurant logo – away with them after dinner.
Although there were originally 800 plates produced, according to Mr Chavez there are now only 45 left.
