Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata

A restaurant in New York is offering something special to customers with expensive tastes – a $1,000 omelette.

Diners at Norma’s in Le Parker Meridien hotel can now order the “Zillion Dollar Frittada”, a Spanish omelette with lobster and 10oz (280g) of caviar.

Restaurant manager Steven Pipes said it began as a lesser dish, but his chefs “decided to have some fun with it”. “We thought we should really make something that would be a spectacular feast for a celebration,” he said.

The restaurant has a bell which will be rung whenever a customer orders the 3,000-calorie dish, topped with sevruga caviar.

According, to BBC, a smaller version of the Zillion Dollar Frittada retails at just $100.

A London restaurant served up what was then thought to be The world’s most expensive omelette. And that was a relative bargain at a mere £90.

The pricey delight, available from London eaterie Bosidale, was made of gulls’ eggs and contained lobster, crab and truffles.
