The Latest in Stunt Menu Items

zillion dollar grilled cheese
Not content with mere foie gras-topped burgers and truffle pizzas, deca at the Ritz Carlton, 160 E. Pearson St., has introduced the Zillion Dollar Grilled Cheese in honor of National Grilled Cheese Month.

The sandwich consists of sourdough bread grilled in extra-virgin olive oil, topped with shaved black Iberico ham, 40-year aged Wisconsin cheddar embedded with 24k gold flakes, heirloom tomatoes, 100-year-old balsamic vinegar, watercress and Oregon Perigord white truffle aioli. Then there's a slice of grilled foie gras and sunny-side up duck egg on top, grated truffle and a bit more gold, and a side of lobster mac-and-cheese.

The whole order sets you back $100. It's available now through April 30. Call 312-573-5160 for a reservation.
