Plate of Pasta At New York Restaurant Costs $2,013
Pasta is typically one of the cheaper entrees at a restaurant. In fact you can often get an endless bowl of it for ten bucks at your local Olive Garden.
But a "plate" of pasta on the menu at Bice, an eatery in Midtown Manhattan, is anything but inexpensive. The dish, featuring homemade tagliolini pasta topped with two pounds of fresh lobster and black truffles, will run you the year-accurate sum of $2,013.
Now you aren't just getting a tasty meal for that shocking price. You also get to keep the gold-leaf plate, which was designed by Gianni Versace and retails at $350.
"It's going to melt in your mouth, the lobster is fresh and tender and all of the flavors work so well together... My mouth is watering thinking about it," is how chef Silverio Chavez described the dish.
So far five people have purchased the meal. From we can gather, this plate of pasta is not endless, despite its shocking price. The gratuity is included though.
