Pricey Lobster and Truffle Pasta at NYC’s BiCE

After 25 years in business, midtown Manhattan’s exclusive restaurant BiCE, has found a new way to one-up its elitist image by creating the world’s most expensive pasta.
Priced at $2,013 (including gratuity… phew), the homemade tagliolini is infused with some sauteed mushrooms and fresh tomatoes.
What makes this pasta worth its buck is the two pounds of fresh Maine lobster and a generous one ounce serving of some exotic black truffle. All this is served up on limited edition Gianni Versace plates that, make note, you can take home with you after your meal.
With only 45 of these gold leaf plates still around, BiCE has really pulled a winner out from under the cloche, and packages your pricey pasta with a small helping of fried calamari, a serving of veal, and a delectable chocolate mousse to square that meal.
While this is another reason to envy those New Yorkers, but not for long, BiCE is en route to global expansion with restaurant chains being planned in Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, North Africa, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, India, China and the UK.
