What Else Should Be On New York Restaurant’s $2000 Plate Of Pasta?

"Eat me."Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post brings us news of the beginning of the French Revolution the War of Poor Aggression.

A high-end Midtown restaurant is serving up the city’s priciest plate of pasta — a $2,000 dish of homemade tagliolini complete with fresh lobster and black truffles and served on a gold-leaf platter designed by late fashion icon Gianni Versace.

Bice Restaurant, at 7 E. 54th St., is charging an arm and a leg of lamb for the dish, part of a four-course meal and wine to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The $2,013 dish features two pounds of wild-caught lobster and sauteed organic vegetables.

Well, that sounds fucking lame. Truffles? Veg? Lobster? Pshaw. Wonkers, we can do better.

Things That Should Be On A $2,000 Plate of Pasta:

  • Jew-blood.
  • The collected smegma of Ashley Dupree.
  • Spam.
  • The head of Rocco DiSpirito.
  • More Spam.
  • Human shit.
