If you’ve got $360 to spare, you can buy one plate of surf and turf at Oliverio at the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills. The restaurant’s new Golden Surf & Turf is $360, and yes, it comes with a bit of gold.
The decadent dish includes seven ounces of gilded Kogashima A5 Wagyu beef and half an ounce of Golden Russian Osetra caviar on a bed of saffron risotto.
“The dish is inspired by a traditional offering from Milan, which features saffron risotto and braised veal,” said executive chef Mirko Paderno in a statement. “We wanted to go with a twist on a classic dish that incorporates true Beverly Hills luxury and elegance.”
Wagyu beef, gold and caviar? Mission accomplished, chef.
The restaurant introduced the dish Monday and has already sold 13. The Gold Surf & Turf will be available until the end of October.
For $360, I’m taking the plate home. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_
