NOT LIKE MAMA MADE Brownie, tranny

You've had a $1,000 caviar and lobster-stuffed omelet for brunch, a $750 Wagyu steak for dinner, and washed it all down with a £750 Mai Tai. What's for dessert?

Instead, it comes with gold-dusted Italian hazelnuts and a glass of port wine served in $750 Baccarat crystal (in what might be considered price-padding, you get to keep the glass). Not that you have to hustle to satiate your sweet tooth: While Manhattan eatery Nello sells 10 to 15 of its pricey slabs of meat a night, Brulee has sold only three brownies so far—to no one famous, a restaurant worker tells Radar, just "some gentleman who had just won a bundle at the casino."
