A touch of gold flake and a drizzling of truffle oil is all it seems to take for a restaurant to advertise a new luxury dish, but these seven sumptuous foods found around the world are over the over-the-top both in creativity and price.
The £1,500 pizza: Industry Kitchen, New York
Assuming it takes you 40 bites to consume the entire, $2,000 (£1,540) pizza at Industry Kitchen in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport neighbourhood, you’ll be paying $50 per bite. Chew through a wood-fired, thin-crust pizza topped with white Stilton, foie gras, French truffles, Osetra caviar, and sheets of gold flake garnished with edible flower petals. Introduced at the end of last year, the pizza requires a two-day advance reservation and, to help you cut your losses, we recommend a posse of four more friends to split the price among the $400 slices.
