Most Exotic Dish/Restaurant in NYC?

What's the most exotic dish in NYC or the restaurant in NYC with the most exotic collection of dishes? I'm looking for dishes of which a mere description will make your jaw drop.

    Try balut at Elvie's Turo Turo on 1st Avenue.

    It's an asian delicacy...a self contained dish...
    a duck egg so ripened that the duck foetus has formed, with a few feathers...

    For the adventurous eater for sure.

    I've eaten it a handful of times over in the Philippines. It's good with a chaser of beer!
    You can read about it on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balut

    Have fun.
