New York restaurant offers Icecream Sundae with Mauboussin ring


If you have been thinking of going down on your knees, restaurant Bagatelle in New York City is probably where you should ask the question.

Bagatelle is a popular restaurant where, among others, the sisters Kardashian, Beyoncé and Jay-Z are regularly spotted. the restaurant also has offices in St Tropez, Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, St Barths and Sao Paolo.

Bagatelle’s piece de resistance is humbly called the Mauboussin Mega Sundae, named for the venerable and nearly two century old French jeweler, Mauboussin, who provides the black steel, white gold and diamond ring each diner takes home upon finishing dessert – apparently in the world of four figure sweets, jewelry is part for the dessert course. Even the ring has a name, ‘Moi non plus/Toi non plus’.

The sundae icecream itself is the work of Bagatelle Executive Chef Sebastien Chamaret, who combines scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream and Don Pérignon Rosé Champagne sorbet with gold leaves, topped with homemade French macaroons, chocolat truffels, dark chocolat brownies gilded in edible 24ct gold with a dash of whipped cream covered in chocolat vodka sauce, all served in an oversized glass.

The restaurant will offer Mauboussin Mega Sundae costing a staggering $1000. Warning, if you are a sweet tooth, don’t go near this. Bankruptcy over ice cream sundaes is not good!
