A NEW York hotel is offering what it claims is the world’s most expensive omelette for  1,000 USdollar.

The Zillion Dollar Frittata, costing the equivalent of £650, is topped with 10 ounces of exclusive sevruga caviar.

It also contains six eggs and an entire lobster, and is displayed on the menu at Norma’s restaurant at the Le Parker Meridien Hotel in New York, United States.

A smaller version featuring one ounce of caviar is on offer for 100 US dollar. A London restaurant previously served up what was then thought to be the planet’s costliest omelette - for a comparative bargain 90 puonds.

That pricey delight, available from Bosidale, was made of gulls’ eggs and contained lobster, crab and truffles.              –WO
