Frivolously Hot Dog

Would you pay $69. for a hot dog?  If so, head right over to Serendipity 3 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan where you’ll find the (how chic) “Haute Dog.” It features a twelve-inch long beef frankfurter, grilled in white truffle oil and placed in a white truffle butter-coated, salt-pretzel bun imported from Germany. The concoction is topped off with duck fois gras with  black truffles, Dijon mustard, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup, and (again) black truffles. This hot dog wonder apparently requires much preparation time, so orders must be placed 24 hours in advance. (And you thought the economy was in trouble!)

I hate to sound like a philistine but I could drive over to Nathan’s in Coney Island and, for that kind of money, pig out into a state of hot diggity dog delirium.
