Would you pay $100 for a meatball???

Even this meatball?

Meatball lovers unite. The humble meatball is being transformed for one day only — on March 9, for National Meatball Day. (Who knew?!)

The $100 meatball will be available at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse at 447 Lexington Ave. Created by executive chef Juan Tourn, it’s made with Wagyu beef, truffle Caciocavallo cheese, foie gras, winter truffles — and topped with a creamy shallot and champagne sauce.

There’s more at the link, including a photograph of the gonzo gargantua meatball.

Sorry.  I’ll be darned if I pay $100 for any meatball, no matter how good its ingredients – unless, of course, I got a couple of pounds of meatball for that price.  With Wagyu beef involved, it’ll get expensive.



  1. Wonder if it come with bread?? Don't know if you remember the Andrews Sisters or them singing "you get no Bread with One Meatball". Darn, now I'm going to have that song running through my head all night. (There is a recording of it out on YouTube.


  2. I'd buy one in a heart beat! Unfortunately it's not only on a Friday, but during Lent, so darn, I'm just out of luck.
