Want to taste "the world's most expensive ham"? El Ideas is cooking up a special dinner dedicated to Cinco Jotas 5J Jamon, a 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham aged in caves whose flavor EI chef & owner Phillip Foss calls "more complex than a divorce" and others have likened to truffles or caviar. A leg will routinely go for more than $1,000, but experiencing chef Foss' showcase of it will ONLY run you $250 a person (plus tax & gratuity)
Oh, you'll also be drinking, as there'll be appropriately Spanish pairings from H2Vino (including a rare 1975 sherry) and cocktails sporting truffle bitters from Adam Seger and Rodrick Markus of Rare Botanical Bitters.
