Sick of the usual pizza toppings? The next time you are in New York, consider treating yourself to something that is more luxurious than the average pie. The restaurant Nino's Bellissima, in Manhattan, has put a $1,000 pizza on the menu. The 12-inch pizza is topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of Petrossian caviar, four ounces of thinly sliced Maine lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of wasabi to complement all the fish. The thin-crust pizza is cut into eight, $125 slices for serving.
You can't just walk in off the street a pick up one of these specialty pies on your way home from work, though. The restaurant needs 24-hour advance notice to make one.
And who is the target audience, besides pizza lovers looking for an unusual experience? Owner Nino Selimaj (pictured, right) says "Definitely Wall Street guys will treat their girlfriends... and their wives, perhaps."
