Serendipity 3 Earns Guinness World Record For Most Expensive Hot Dog At $69

The New York City landmark restaurant, Serendipity 3 has created the world’s most expensive hot dog dubbed The Serendipity Foot-Long Haute Dog which will sell for $69.

The beef dog is grilled in delicate white truffle oil and placed in a salted pretzel bread bun toasted with white truffle butter.

The Haute Dog will be topped with medallions of duck foie gras with black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup and, of course, mustard (Dijon, with black truffles).

“It definitely will be the most delicious hot dog ever,” Serendipity 3 publicist Joe Calderone shared. “And the most opulent.”

Owner Stephen Bruce and Serendipity’s chef are responsible for the recipe.

“The hot dog is one of America’s favorite foods, and since the foot-long hot dog at Serendipity has been so popular over the years, it makes sense to create a ‘haute cuisine’ version,” Bruce said.

The Haute Dog will, in fact, become a regular part of the menu, though orders will need to be placed 24 hours in advance to allow time for the special ingredients to be flown in fresh.

Calderone hopes the flamboyant frank will appeal to its frequent celebrity diners, including Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Jay-Z and Beyonce, and Cher.

“Cher is a regular who always gets the regular foot-long,” Calderone said. “Now we will offer her the most expensive one.”

  1. What’s the point? Just give me a hot dog from a street vendor or some greasy spoon. Hot dogs weren’t meant to be gourmet.
