Remember when a slice used to be tied to the price of a subway ride?


Even for New York, this is crazy. Restauranteur Nino Selimaj is selling a $1,000 pizza:

"The pizza will be added to the menu at "Nino's Bellisima," one of Selimaj's six restaurants in the city. Forget traditional cheese and pizza sauce, the record-priced pie will be topped with creme fraiche, chives, eight ounces of four different kinds of Petrossian caviar, four ounces of thinly sliced Maine lobster tail, salmon roe, and a little bit of spice with wasabi.

And unlike your typical pizza, this one won't be cooked, after all, that would spoil the fish. The 12-inch pie is sliced into four pieces, which comes to $250 per slice."


I for one refuse to pay more than $600 for my pizza.

I don't get the pizza-subway reference?

It actually sounds sort of disgusting - caviar, lobster tail and creme fraiche on pizza? Yech.
