An order of fifty wings comes with a bottle of Champagne for just $1,000 #FACTS APR. 25, 2018. When you think of hitting the town for a fancy dinner, #chickenwings are probably not the first option that comes to mind. While crispy and spicy #Buffalowings and #sweet and sticky #barbecue #wings are all finger-licking-ly delicious, it's that messy factor that usually gets in the way of an elegant dining experience. But if you're looking to class up your wing game or just have an excuse to make wings the object of your splurging tendencies, upscale lounge and #sportsbar #TheAinsworth has you covered with its gold covered chicken wings The shiny wings and drummettes start by being soaked in a coconut butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24 hours, before being fried and finished off with a dusting of gold flakes Of course, #bluecheese comes on the side so you can dip them if you so choose. The menu item is a collaboration between The Ainsworth and #JonathanCheban a.k.a. #Foodgōd You may recognize Cheban's name (and face) from his appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. His Foodgōd website is dedicated to showcasing trendy and over-the-top treats and the accompanying #Instagram account boasts over 2.6 million followers According to a representative, the Foodgōd #GoldenWings are available in three tiers: 10 wings for $30 20 wings for $60 50 wings + one bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1,000 The Ainsworth has four locations in #NewYorkCity (Chelsea, Midtown, East Village, and FiDi), two locations in #NewJersey (Hoboken and Newark), and a location in Kansas City, MO, with a Nashville, TN outpost set to open soon. #TheFoodgōdGoldenWings will debut as a permanent menu item at the #Chelsea and #EastVillage locations on May 1, and make their way to all of the other locations shortly thereafter If you can't wait until May to try these decadent-looking finger foods, you can always satisfy your appetite with our recipes for gold-colored honey mustard wings, spicy #sriracha wings, and maple bacon wings until then #NINFONETWORK #FOODNINFO #FOODNETWORK #FOODANDWINE #EEEEEATS #HUFFPOSTTASTE #EATERDENVER #TRUECOOKS #FOODIE #NYC #uglydelicious
What could be better than chicken wings? Well, I'm glad you asked. How about GOLD chicken wings?!
If you're looking for an upscale version of this messy appetizer, The Ainsworth and Jonathan Cheban (a.k.a. Foodgōd) have got you covered.
The fancy bar and Kim Kardashian's best friend have partnered to produce gold-covered chicken wings, according to Food&Wine.
The wings are made by first "being soaked in a coconut butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24 hours, before being fried and finished off with a dusting of gold flakes." The wings are served with a side of blue cheese for dipping, but do you really want to dip such works of art in blue cheese?
The wings are appropriately named the Foodgōd 24 Karat Wings, and they're pretty pricey.
You can get 10 of these masterpieces for $30, 20 for $60, OR if you really want to be a baller, you can get 50 wings and a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1,000.
This golden chicken will officially cross the road and make it onto the menu come May 1st at the Chelsea and East Village restaurants, and then make its way to the other locations after that.
We're on our way.
