A chain of upscale restaurants in the US are now offering chicken wings that are covered in gold, paired with a bottle of champagne for $1,000. This extravagant wings are from The Ainsworth, an upscale restaurant, bar, and lounge venue that has four locations in New York City and two in New Jersey, Kansas City, and Nashville. The Ainsworth collaborated with Jonathan Cheban, who is on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Cheban, who calls himself the “Foodgod,” has an Instagram account with over 2.6 million followers. The opulent wings are soaked in a mixture of coconut butter, gold butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24 hours. Then they are dusted with real gold flakes before being served with a gourmet bleu cheese dipping sauce. The precious metal-covered chicken costs $30 for 10 wings or $60 for 20 wings. For those with deep bank accounts, you can purchase 50 ostentatious wings plus a bottle of Jay-Z’s Champagne ‘Armand de Brignac’ for $1,000.
