The $1,000 Brownie
In Atlantic City, you can eat dessert or you can eat Dessert. The dessert-centered restaurant Brulee at the Tropicana offers three pricey selections off their crystal menu. Each dessert is the centerpiece of a three part menu that includes an amuse sucree, the dessert and petit fours. The desserts include an arabesque and a mille-nuits each served on Baccarat crystal. The most decadent dish might be the Brownie Extraordinaire with Saint Louis which sells for $1,000. It is a chocolate brownie with Italian hazelnuts, ice cream and a St. Louis crystal atomizer containing 1996 Quinta do Noval Nacional Port. It sells for $1,000 and you get to keep the atomizer. Personally, I'd just rather have a full bottle of the Port which can be found for half that.
