The Least Politically Correct Dishes

OMAKASE DINNER
Masa

Sure it’s delicious. But those fancy little fish have a carbon footprint the size of a large suburban house.

CHILEAN SEA BASS
Le Cirque

The fish is endangered. The Champagne for the sauce is flown in from France. And we haven’t even gotten to the caviar yet.

LOBSTER DUMPLINGS, WHOLE PEKING DUCK
Buddakan

Okay, the meal’s not so egregious. But can you imagine what it costs to heat that room?

PORTERHOUSE FOR THREE
Peter Luger

This fat-drizzled monster is rigorously unorganic and corn-fed. And if you eat too many of them, you might die.

SEA URCHIN AND CAVIAR, SEARED KOBE BEEF
Le Bernardin

The Kobe’s flown in from Japan, and for the price of the meal ($352), you could purchase a few carbon credits.

IRANIAN GOLDEN OSSETRA CAVIAR, WILD SCOTTISH GROUSE WITH FOIE GRAS “CROMESQUIS”
Daniel

Another jet-age, gas-guzzling feast. And you’ll have to answer to the foie police.
