Stephen Colbert Food Episode: Michael Pollan And $1000 Meals At Norma’s, Nino’s Bellissima Pizza, And Serendipity 3 In New York City [Laugh Of The Day]

So last night, The Colbert Report was food, food, and more food!  Nothing like a few laughs to go along with that $125 slice of pie.  While commenting über expensive dishes is a bit passé, this episode was pretty damn funny.  During the episode, host Stephen Colbert decided to dash around New York City and have one of the most expensive three-course meals ever.  Laughs after the jump!

First up was Norma’s in Le Parker Meridien (website).  Here, Colbert ordered up  an omelette listed as the "Zillion Dollar Frittata."  Apparently, it has "$3 worth of eggs, $60 worth of lobster, $650 worth of caviar, and let’s say $287 worth of potatoes."  Not to be outdone, Nino’s Bellissima Pizza then served him 8oz of caviar, some lobster, and some fancy shmancy cheeses.  Finally, Stephen ran over to Serendipity 3 (website) for the Golden Opulence Sunday.  Coming in at an even $1,000, the sundae is inundated with gold (which ended up on Colbert’s face).  Classic!

Last but not least, here is the interview with Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (or click here for hardcover):
