The World’s Most Expensive Omelette - Zillion Dollar Frittata

The world’s most expensive omelette is the ‘Zillion Dollar Frittata’. However, it doesn't really cost a zillion dollars as its name seems to imply, but is priced at a comparatively modest US $1,000. A frittata is an egg-based dish, to which enhancements like cheese, vegetables, meats or pasta may be added. This omelette frittata can be ordered at Norma’s Restaurant in the Le Parker Meridien Hotel, situated in the Manhattan area of New York City.

Why is the ‘Zillion Dollar Frittata’ omelette so expensive?

Well, for one reason only! This omelette contains some of the most expensive ingredients in the world, which include ten ounces of American Sturgeon caviar, which ordinarily sells for the price of $65 per ounce. Other costly items in this omelette are whole lobster, cream and chives.

According to Marisa Zafran, the Director of Public Relation at the Le Parker Meridien Hotel, the hotel sells this omelette at about the cost it takes to make one, and does not generate much of a profit on its sale. If you wish to taste this luxury omelette but can’t afford to pay US $1,000 for it, you can try the miniature version of the ‘Zillion Dollar Frittada’ omelette, which only costs $100!
