NYC’s iconic Serendipity3 is no stranger to over-the-top, extravagant dishes–many of their menu items have broken Guinness World Records, like their bank-breaking $200 fries dusted with 23K edible gold!
And, in typical Serendipity3 fashion, they’re not holding anything back for their 68th anniversary.
To help celebrate their anniversary this week, the restaurant is honoring one of the most influential icons in the food industry, James Beard, and they’re doing so in a tasty (and quite pricey) way.
From Thursday, September 15 through Sunday, September 18, guests can order the famous “James Beard Fine Herbes Omelette,” made with Urbani Kaluga Caviar and Créme Fraîche” for a whopping $68 with 10% of proceeds being donated to the James Beard Foundation.
Known as”America’s First Foodie,” James Beard loved and often frequented Serendipity3, and eventually taught the founders how to make this omelette.
“As a chef, I personally admire James Beard and all that he has done for the food and culinary industry. He is a legend here at Serendipity3,” said Chef Joe Calderone, Creative Director of Serendipity3 in a press release. “We are thrilled to bring a version of this omelette back in support of the James Beard Foundation.
This mouthwatering French-style omelette is infused with fine herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, chervil, and chives, and topped with a dollop of crème fraîche before being finished off with a generous 1/2 ounce of Urbani Kaluga Caviar. Complete with a side of herbed frisée salad with champagne vinaigrette, this classic breakfast dish is definitely being brought to the next level.
Located at 225 E 60th Street, Serendipity3 is open from 11a.m. – 11p.m. Reservations can be made here.
