Boing points us to the folks at
DailyOlive.com, who have the
lowdown on the $1,000 Golden
Opulence Sundae designed by
New York’s Midtown/UES
Serendipity restaurant to
celebrate its 50th birthday last

… 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice

the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei

Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand
Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of
salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its
sparkling golden color. It’s sweetened and infused
with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The
sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal
goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the
indulgence, served with a petite mother of pearl
spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron
Ben-Israel.
No word on whether you get to keep the spoon or if the price tag
includes a Happy Ending.
