Did you know that Serendipity 3 (yes, the namesake of the movie by the same name) in New York City serves the Guinness Book of World Records' most expensive dessert? Yep. It's the $1000 Golden Opulence Sundae. Serendipty's website doesn't say much about what's in it, but Wikipedia describes it as "The dessert consists of five scoops of Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla, covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf, rare Amedei Porceleana and Chuao chocolate, American Golden caviar, passion fruit, orange, Armagnac, candied fruits from Paris, marzipan cherries, and decorated with real gold dragees. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18-karat gold spoon."
Do you think you get to keep the goblet and spoon?
Another Serendipity bonus? Star sightings...apparently this 60th Street gem is a celebrity hotspot...
