To go along with the most ridiculously priced sandwich of 2007 ($99 at the Park Grill at InterContinental Hotel), now we have Nic's Beverly Hills serving a $150 martini. We don't doubt that it's tasty (made with Kauffman Vodka, "the most expensive vodka in the world," distilled 14 times) and fancy (served in a hand-blown Michael Weems glass that you get to keep), but we can't help but question the timing. Writer's strike, anyone? Recession? Hello? [EaterWire]
