Eat a $100 Ice Cream Sundae at a High Line Restaurant
MEATPACKING DISTRICT — Don't try eating it alone.
The towering sundae features 16 scoops of the Gansevoort Street eatery's signature housemade ice cream, adorned with toppings including pretzels, pecans, chocolate chip cookie crumbs, chocolate and caramel syrup, rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, cherries and an (inedible) miniature American flag.
For those watching their waistline or budget, not to worry: A half-size Little Kitchen Sink, with only eight scoops, can be had for a mere $50.
The gigantic sundaes leave out some of the soda fountain's more unusual toppings that are made in-house and are available on smaller ice cream orders, like candied citrus peel, gingersnap crumbs and toasted marshmallow.
Bubby's added the soda fountain earlier this spring, after the owner Ron Silver was inspired by a 1920s book put out by the editors of Soda Fountain Magazine.
Bubby's High Line, 71 Gansevoort St., (212) 206-6200, is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
