Eggs to impress

Talk about snob appeal: If you have a really, really high-end group, this might be just the ticket for a luxurious brunch. According to this article in today's New York Times, the Parker Meridien hotel's latest breakfast dish is a $1,000 "six-egg frittata with lobster, cream and 10 ounces of sevruga caviar." And, just in case anyone in the restaurant might miss the fact that you're a big spender, they ring a cowbell when you order it.

"The folks at Le Parker Meridien realize they won't be selling many $1,000 frittatas," the article says. "But they also know that plenty of people will be drawn to a place that offers such a choice. And besides, it makes the $28 French toast look like a bargain."
