Just in case you have an extra $5000 in your pocket, you can now spend it on the cheesecake at the Rafele Ristorante in Greenwich Village. Chef Raffaele Ronca offers this crazy expensive cheesecake and Robert Frank from CNBC recently got to enjoy one.
So what’s in this cheesecake? The cheesecake starts with fresh formaggio from water buffalo in southern Italy which is flown in the day before it is to be used. Next, he includes 200-year old cognac that costs $2500 a bottle. He adds in vanilla beans from Madagascar and then white truffles from Alba in Italy.
Next, the cheesecake includes some more flavors and a sprinkling of gold flakes. And he tops it with other goodies that you can read about. The cake is actually in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive cheesecake ever made. It takes five days to prepare.
Of course, if you want to indulge in something delicious that it priced at a regular price, you can enjoy their regular cheesecake for $9 per slice.
