Would you like to try a $1,000 ice cream sundae on a Monday or any day? Splurge on one, if you can afford, at the fancy Meatpacking District hotspot Bagatelle. An absolute luxury for your sweet tooth, the desert is named the Mauboussin Mega Sundae, as tribute to the French luxury jeweler Mauboussin. Don’t just hurry yet to Bagatelle, because it won’t be available till May 1st.
According to Bagatelle’s Chef Sebastien Chamaret, the sundae comes loaded with homemade vanilla ice cream with macaroons, chocolate truffles, Dom Perignon Rose sorbet with gold leaves, chocolate vodka sauce, gilded brownies and fresh whipped cream served in an over-sized martini glass.
It wouldn’t be proper for a sundae named Mauboussin to not come with some real bling. Instead of a cherry, jeweler’s signature white gold and black steel ring is used as topping. Each ring comes engraved with the words “Moi non plus, Toi non plus,” which more or less translates to “Me either, and neither do you.” The ring itself costs Bagatelle $500, so in a sense you are actually paying only $500 for the sundae.
Ready for a bit more luxury food adventure, add a side order of Bagatelle’s $22 cheeseburger and $1,000 magnums of rosé to go with the Mauboussin Mega Sundae.
As far as luxury and pricey ice creams go this is hardly the priciest ever, that label belongs to another Manhattan establishment, Serendipity 3. In 2007, they created one named “Frrozen” Haute Chocolate with a lofty price tag of $25,000.
