        The supplement is $95. Available at both lunch and dinner.

      this one tops my list for must tries before i die, simple yet decadent. It just has to be delicious.

      The dish: soft egg yolk in ravioli with brown butter sauce and shaved white truffles - SD26 makes a version I know, I don't believe it is a unique dish and there may be others who make it as well.

        Churrascaria Plataforma.

          The service is awful, but pretty much any breakfast plate at Norma's is "over the top indulgent"

            I know this isn't fancy at all, but I have a soft heart of Korean BBQ with all the fixins.

                The mille crepe cake at Lady M - 20 layers of very thin crepes with vanilla custard and a caramel glaze. Surprisingly light and very delicious.

                  I'm presuming you're defining "indulgent food" as a gustatory gut bomb rather than exorbitant price tag? If so, I would go for Shake Shack's "Shack Stack" (it's their deep fried portobello mushroom encasing melted cheeses and a cheeseburger) with a side of custard and/or cheese fries.

                    For a dessert suggestion, I'd recommend the Brooklyn Blackout Cupcake from Two Little Red Hens. It's *insanely* rich and chocolate-y (moist, delicate crumb chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate pudding, topped with chocolate fudge frosting and coated with chocolate crumbs). Whenever I do have it, I always share it with a friend just because it's very indulgent.
