"Foodgod" Is Bringing 24 Karat Gold Chicken Wings To NYC

by Stephanie Maida · April 30, 2018

    If you find the typical offerings on your local sports bar menu way too plebeian, we've got some good news. New York's semi-elevated bar chain, The Ainsworth, has teamed up with Kim K's bestie, Jonathan Cheban (who goes by Foodgōd on Instagram), to bring luxurious bites to the masses.

    Introducing 24 Karat Wings, a golden delicacy set to become a permanent menu item at locations across the city (and country) starting on May 1st. They're as extra as you'd expect, soaking in a coconut butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24-hours and then dusted with real gold flakes - served with a side of bleu cheese for good measure.

    Orders of 10 will be available for $30, 20 for $60, and, if you're in it for the ultimate Insta, 50 come with a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1000. Because you know you'll need some sips with those #EEEEEATS.

    They debut this Tuesday at The Ainsworth East Village and The Ainsworth Chelsea, so get your stomach (and phone camera) ready.
