‘The Steak itself had lots of marbling and it was soooooo tender. It literally melted in my mouth,’ gushed @feedyourgirlfriend, who tried it around the time of its debut.

Metal mouth: These 24-karat gold chicken wings debuted at The Ainsworth
Kim Kardashian’s friend Jonathan Cheban helped unveil the wings and collaborated on them with the restaurant
And in May of 2018, The Ainsworth came out with chicken wings covered in edible 24-karat gold.
Kim Kardashian’s friend Jonathan Cheban helped unveil the wings, which hit menus at the restaurant’s locations in Chelsea and the East Village.
Ten wings cost $45, 20 wings $90, and for $1,000 diners could order 50 wings with a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac.
Jonathan created the wings in collaboration with The Ainsworth owner Brian Mazza, who raved about them as well.
‘The creative process is hands down the best part of my job! This 24k Gold Wing collab with @foodgod was a really fun project!’
Height of decadence: Industry Kitchen in New York City has a pizza on offer topped with truffles, caviar, and 24-karat gold
Interesting mix: The pizza, which requires 48 hours advance notice on orders, works out to $250 per slice
And in 2016, Industry Kitchen earned internet buzz when it debuted The 24k, a pizza made with gold, for a whopping $2,000.
The 24k flakes on the pizza top imported white stilton cheese, dollops of Ossetra caviar from the Caspian Sea, as well as truffles and Fois Gras from France.
Sliced into eight pieces, the pizza works out to $250 per slice, meaning it costs roughly $50 per bite.
Talking to Town & Country, Industry Kitchen Executive Chef Braulio Bunay said he was inspired to create the pizza by the city’s Financial District, which he described as ‘the epitome of decadence’.
‘The pizza is extremely rich — if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you,’ he said.
Bunay also claimed that, despite its decadence – and price tag – using the ingredients as pizza toppings made it ‘more approachable’.
