If you’re always updated on all things Kardashian, you need no introduction to Jonathan Cheban, Chief Executive Best Friend to KKW herself. While he is usually in the news for being celebrity adjacent, Cheban is planning to cause a splash in the NYC gourmet scene by introducing 24 carat gold covered chicken wings to the menu at The Ainsworth – an NY bar chain.
These midas touched chicken wings are soaked in coconut butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24 hour, then fried and given their golden cover before being served with a blue cheese dip. At the Ainsworth you can get 10 wings for $30 USD, 20 wings for $60 USD or 50 wings and a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1,000 USD. While we can understand an item like this being served as a one-off, we’re surprised to learn that the golden wings are permanent menu items.
Gold dusted chicken wings sound like something you would order, just so you can post about it on Instagram, which makes sense given that Cheban gained his 2.6 million Insta followers while riding the coattails of the original Instagram celeb: Kim K. We prefer our gold on jewelry and watches, on our chicken wings we like hot sauce! If you really want to try some fancy food, check out gastronomy tag for ideas.
