A New York City restaurant is taking lessons from Bruno Mars by serving up 24K gold chicken wings. The delicacy actually comes from the mind of the Foodgod aka Jonathan Chebon aka Kim Kardashian’s bestie. He’s teamed up with The Ainsworth Chelsea to bring the flashiest chicken wings on the market.
Brian Mazza, president of Paige Hospitality (which owns the Ainsworth), says they were just trying to be different in creating the wings. "We wanted to create something over-the-top that's never been done before," he explains. "And you've never seen or tasted anything like it before." So what do they taste like? It’s all in the preparation.
The chicken wings aren’t as out there as they seem and are actually prepared like normal wings. First chefs brine the wings for about 12 hours - a half-hour per karat. Then they coat it with a house-made dry rub, bake and fry, and then sprinkle on a layer of gold dust. So how much do these golden wings cost? Wings come in orders of 10 for $45 or 20 for $90. If you’re feeling really boujee you can also order 50 plus a bottle of Jay-Z’s Ace of Spades Champagne for $1,000.
