New York Kosher Restaurant Serves $1,000 Sandwich in Honor of Super Bowl
A kosher restaurant in New York is selling a $1,000 pastrami sandwich in honor of the Super Bowl, which takes places on Sunday.
Doma Land + Sea announced news of its “King DOMA” sandwich on Facebook and said it will be serving the meal until Monday. The Long Island restaurant prepares the sandwich, which was ordered by a customer on Thursday night, with the “most elite ingredients,” it said, including truffles, foie gras and gold leafs. The “King DOMA” is also served with a flute of Champagne, gold-dusted black-truffle potato tots, and kosher dill pickles.
The sandwich is filled with Glenlivet-brined prime beef short ribs that had a Indonesian coffee rub. The 12 ounces of meat are laid between pieces of grilled rye flatbread, spiked with rye whiskey, and the other delicacies inside the sandwich include beets infused with vodka and champagne-infused mustard. The sandwich must be ordered at least two hours in advance and the restaurant will take a $100 deposit by credit card, according to Newsday.
“I just figured I want to do something interesting and fun for the Super Bowl,” the restaurant’s executive chef Oscar Martinez, told the publication. “And I figured everyone’s been talking about the nachos, and wings and hotdogs, so I figured, why not do something exciting.” Martinez added that the sandwich serves up “a rollercoaster of flavors.”
Martinez has a history of going over-the-top with meat. At a previous restaurant where he worked, he helped create a $100,000 replica of the famous meat dress Lady Gaga wore in 2010, as well $4,900 Super Bowl chicken wings covered with caviar and foie gras, according to Newsday.
