24 Karat Gold Dusted Chicken Wings Have Arrived in NYC

“Foodgōd” Jonathan Cheban has definitely been living his life like its golden. While Kim K’s BFF is still keeping up with the Kardashian’s, he’s also been busy promoting his recent collaboration with New York City restaurant chain The Ainsworth. The tag team debuted 24 karat gold-dusted chicken wings at The Ainsworth’s Chelsea and Village locations in NYC. Yup, you read that right – 24 karat gold because it’s 2018 and apparently even chicken wings should be dripping in finesse like Bruno Mars and Cardi B.

To feast on these golden wings doesn’t come cheap. A plate of 50 wings coupled with a gold bottle of Ace of Spades champagne will set you back $1,000 USD. Each mountain of 50 wings is covered in $200 worth of gold dust. Now, if you  don’t even have $1,000 in your bank account, you can opt to dish out $30 for 10 wings or $60 for 20.

Most people want to know – is it even safe to eat gold? The short answer is yes. Gold is considered biologically inert, meaning it passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed. However, edible gold does need to be as pure as possible (22-24 karats).

These blinged out wings have stirred up a lot of opinions on social media – both positive and negative. Some people feel like this is all in good food fun and provides diner’s with a cool experience. While other’s feel like these 24 karat gold wings are beyond over the top and excessive.

  4. No. Eating gold seems wasteful unless it cures disease. If someone else wants to eat them, that’s up to them.

  5. No, I would not spend this much for gold wings. Does it has any good benefits to our health or does it taste any better if the wings are coated with gold? If yes, may be I will consider spending that much.
