Do we need a better augury of a renewed global economy than this? TMZ is reporting
that our favorite spendthrift Roman Abramovich
is at it again. He spent around $52,000 on lunch in New York City at Italian food restaurant Nello's. Abramovich and his party of nine others dined on truffle
carpaccio, rigatoni Siciliana, truffle taglioni, filet mignon and more but what really boosted the tab was the wine
. The bill which TMZ has obtained shows bottles of Cristal Rosé, Chateau Petrus and Domaine Romanee-Conti La Tache as well as some Johnnie Walker Blue. Apparently, Abramovich and his crew aren't sweets lovers, there's just one lone tiramisu on the list.
TMZ reports that the check had an automatic gratuity of 20 percent, over $7,000 but Roman and crew threw in another $5,000, bringing the tip to 26 percent. Classy move, oligarchs.
