Watch Foodgōd Eat America’s Most Expensive Appetizer
There’s a new spotlight-stealing dish in the Big Apple.
Manhattan’s Benjamin Steakhouse Prime serves up an outrageous surf and turf appetizer that comes with a hefty $1,000 price tag.
To create America’s most expensive starter, Executive Chef Jesus Nunez pairs raw Wagyu beef tartare with tuna tartare, and tops the whole thing with a generous amount of foie gras, edible 24K gold flakes, white truffles shavings, edible flowers, and Osetra caviar.
The truffles alone cost $3,800 a pound, and the caviar is $100 per ounce, according to Benjamin’s.
“There are a lot of big, over-the-top price tag things in here,” shares Foodgōd in the episode, as he chows down with his jewelry-making buddy and dining partner-in-crime, Richie Rich.
“This is decadence at the highest level.”
