Wacky Restaurant Serves Meals on Saddam Hussein’s Old Plates


Upper East Side establishment Park Avenue Autumn has begun serving a dish dubbed “Spoils,” a meal consisting of venison topped with date syrup and served on “glitzy, gold-painted plates looted from the palaces” of the former Iraqi leader. Park Avenue Autumn may be hard to pinpoint due to its tradition of changing its name each season, so if you get lost, just look for the only restaurant in Manhattan with menus written in Saddam Hussein’s blood.
