‘Zillion Dollar’ Grilled Cheese Comes with Foie Gras, 24K Gold Flaked Wisconsin Cheddar

We can’t presume to know why the 1% do anything they do. Once the houses and boats and kids’ private preschools and spare Lambos have been paid off, maybe they really don’t have anything better to do with their money than shit gold.

It’d certainly explain this obnoxiously plush grilled cheese sandwich. New at the deca restaurant at The Ritz Carlton Chicago, the ‘Zillion Dollar’ Grilled Cheese actually just costs $100, which is kind of a steal when you consider what goes into the damn thing. Let’s count: thinly sliced Iberico ham made from free-roaming, acorn-eating Spanish pigs. Artisan sourdough bread. 40 year aged, 24K gold flaked Wisconsin cheddar. Hudson Valley foie gras, white truffle aioli, and a sunny-side-up duck egg.

Lest that price tag still make your blue blood a little thin, the ‘wich also comes with a side skillet of lobster macaroni and cheese. Available until the end of April for National Grilled Cheese Month.
