Chicago’s $100 Grilled Cheese Sandwich


This is not a drill. Chicago’s Deca Restaurant + Bar is peddling the “Zillion Dollar Grilled Cheese” (which actually costs $100) to its apparently cash-loaded patrons. The sandwich is a grilled ham and cheese — black Iberico ham and 40-year aged Wisconsin cheddar cheese infused with 24k gold flakes, that is. There’s also some white truffle aioli, heirloom tomatoes, 100-year-old aged balsamic vinegar, and foie gras in there, and it’s all topped with a fried duck egg. Oh, AND, it’s served with a side of lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. Yep.
