Restaurants Pull Ridiculously Expensive Stunt Dishes

Times are tough for everyone: due to a lack of people willing to spend $270 on a white truffle baked potato or $1,000 on a bagel with "truffle cream-cheese shmear and goji-berry jelly with gold leaves," restaurants have been cutting outlandishly priced stunt items from their menus.

Thankfully, you can still get the $10,000 martini at New York's Algonquin Hotel, which comes with a diamond garnish. Although, as Zagat guide publisher Tim Zagat puts it, "Anyone who does that looks like a horse's ass."
