    Default Health Dept. Closes Restaurant Offering Ridiculous $25,000 Desert...

    Mice, roaches close home of $25,000 dessert

    Fri Nov 16, 10:28 AM ET

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Manhattan restaurant that unveiled a record-breaking $25,000 dessert last week has been forced to shut its doors temporarily due to an infestation of mice and cockroaches.

    Serendipity 3 on the Upper East Side failed its second consecutive health inspection in a month on Wednesday night after health officials found a live mouse, mouse droppings in multiple places, flies and dozens of live cockroaches, the Heath Department said.

    "We're rectifying it as quickly as we can," said owner Steven Bruce, adding the restaurant would then be allowed to reopen.

    Serendipity 3 set a Guinness world record on November 7 for the most expensive dessert when it partnered with luxury jeweler Euphoria New York to create "Frrozen Haute Chocolate," a blend of 28 cocoas fused with 0.2 ounces of edible 23-karat gold.

    It comes with an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds at the base of the goblet. The sundae is topped with whipped cream covered with more gold and a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for $2,600 a pound.

    The desert is a more decadent take on Serendipity's $8.50 "Frrrozen Hot Chocolate," which the talk show host Oprah Winfrey once endorsed by saying it made her want to "dance on the chandeliers." Bruce also has a $1,000 ice cream sundae on the menu called Golden Opulence.

    Maybe the owner of this joint should have re invested some of that profit into a good extermination company.

    Sadly, being on East Coast, they cannot enlist The Hammer Guys. Western Exterminators would get rid of them critters!

    Guess they got their - just desserts - eh?

    *sorry*

    That's pretty disgusting. I'd be surprised if they opened up again after all that. Maybe relocation s/b a consideration.
