This might the Grand Slam of all time. Manhattan’s just got its first Denny’s and it ain’t your average Denny’s. This one has a breakfast that costs $300. For this price, diners get to sip on Dom Perignon champagne while chowing down their Grand Slams.
The “Grand Cru Slam” breakfast includes two Grand Slam breakfasts, a vintage bottle of 2003 Dom Perignon Premier Cru champagne, and a “bartender high-five.”
The diner opened in the Financial District last Friday and features a “craft cocktail” menu, flat-screen TVs and leather booths, reports The New York Post. Most meals are low-priced. But you can find such options as menu breakfasts paired with fancy cocktails like the $9 “house” Bloody Mary, an Aperol Spritz or a Bellini.
“You’re not just in a Denny’s — you’re in a Manhattan Denny’s,” franchise owner Rahul Marwah told the Post. “We built such a high-end restaurant in terms of the decor and atmosphere but . . . it’s very affordable,” he said.
Still this obviously isn’t your classic Denny’s classic greasy spoon.
NYC’s Denny isn’t alone in offering expensive breakfasts in the U.S. Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World made TheRichest‘s list of the world’s most expensive breakfasts for its $60 morning meal for one adult. “A basic breakfast in Cinderella’s castle includes ascending the majestic staircase into the banquet hall, a pastry plate appetizer, your choice of entrée, like caramel apple French toast or lobster and crab crepes and, of course, the company of your favorite Disney princesses,” reports TheRichest.
Le Parker Meridien in New York City, has Denny’s beat. Its breakfast costs a whopping $1,000 for which diners get a six-egg frittata made with lobster claw and topped with ten ounces of caviar. The “Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata” isn’t a hot seller however. Since it’s been on the menu for two years, the restaurant has only sold about a dozen of them.
