A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

CHOCOLATE AND GOLD AND MICE, OH YEAH!

You don't always get what you pay for ... sometimes you get a little more.

Mice and cockroaches are not on the menu at Serendipity 3, the Manhattan restaurant that unveiled a record-breaking $25,000 chocolate dessert fused with edible gold, but they managed to cost the owners of the Upper East Side establishment a pretty penny.


The restaurant failed its second health inspection in a month yesterday after city officials found a live mouse and dozens of cockroaches, along with mouse droppings and flies.

The Frrozen Haute Chocolate comes with an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 karat of white diamonds at the base of the goblet, hopefully minus the little extras.

Maybe owners should parlay their bad luck and serve diamond-encrusted cockroaches on the side.

Anyone who would pay $25,000 for dessert has mouse droppings for brains anyway.

Hopefully the chocolate mousse is not a misprint of chocolate mouse!

Not a fan of NYC restaurants.
I get any manner of fine meal at
"The Shore".
No need to drive to NYC,even though I now live closer to NY than the shore...the shore still is my favorite dining place.
