A Manhattan restaurant has created a pasta dish topped with fresh lobster and one ounce of black truffle to usher in the new year, for the princely sum of $2,013.
BiCE, a posh Italian restaurant in New York, is confident that customers with deep pockets will be willing to shell out more than $2,000 (€1,530) for a dish of homemade tagliolini, two pounds (0.45 kg) of fresh Maine lobster, wild mushrooms and a generous shaving of black truffle.
Chef Silverio Chavez says what makes the dish even more unique is the fact that it comes served on a gold leaf platter designed by fashion designer Gianni Versace.
Versace, who died in 1997, was reportedly a fan of the Milan-based restaurant which opened in 1926 and expanded to New York in 1987.
Seven months before his death, the designer was approached to design a limited edition series of chinaware for the restaurant. Although there were originally 800 plates produced, according to Mr Chavez there are now only 45 left.
The four-course meal also includes a starter of crispy calamari and crabcakes, veal scaloppini in a lemon caper sauce, sautéed spinach, potatoes gratin, and a ‘special BiCE’ dessert.

Montblanc is partnering with the St. Regis Washington DC Hotel and Thornwillow Press on a pop-up hotel lobby store for Barack Obama’s upcoming inauguration.
Fans of the Montblanc brand assembling in Washington DC for the upcoming inauguration will be able to purchase leather goods, cuff links, timepieces and signature writing instruments in a new pop-up location.
Obama’s first inauguration address from January 2009 has also been bound especially for the event and will be on sale in the store.
Scheduled for January 21, the event will see Chief Justice John Roberts swear the president in for a second term after his November 2012 victory in the US elections.
Huge crowds are expected to assemble on the US Capitol for the historic event, as the 44th US president, and the first-ever African-American to occupy the Oval Office, is sworn in for a second term.
A selection of other historic presidents including Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, James Madison and John Adams, will also appear on Montblanc’s ‘America’s Signature for Freedom’ collection of limited-edition presidential pens, available at the pop-up. Thornwillow Press has produced a hand-printed book titled “A Presidential Miscellany” for the occasion (pictured below).
In an added interactive element, visitors to the stand will be encouraged to use Montblanc stationery and pens to write letters to the president that will then be hand-delivered to the White House by the St. Regis Hotel’s team of butlers.
