NYC is famous for both cheap and ludicrously expensive eats—just look at what Daniel Boulud did with his foi gras hamburger (mmm, controversial foi gras). Today at 11:30 a.m, another Manhattan eatery will transform a typical staple of the starving college student into a work of very expensive art: Nino’s Bellissima Restaurant on Second Avenue will be dishing out a pizza pie costing a whopping $1,000. If there are your typical eight slices, that’s only $125 each. It will be topped with delicacies like Petrossian caviar, lobster and top of the line cheeses. Too much? Restaurant owner Nino Salimaj boasts the most expensive pizza he could find other than his own costs a mere $193 at Gordon Ramsey’s Maze Restaurant in London. Well, congrats—you win in the humble-cum-unaffordable food contest. We doubt there’s delivery, so hurry up foodies!
