The Westin New York Hotel in Times Square is getting ready to bring back its fancy version of a plain bagel with cream cheese, which first hit the scene 10 years ago, Carla Caccavale, a spokesperson for the business, told USA Today.

Baked by New Yorker Bagels, the extravagant bread will be smeared with Alba white truffle cream cheese only to be topped with goji berry-infused Riesling jelly and golden leaves.
But don't let the golden leaves fool you — according to Caccavale, the most expensive topping on this fancy baked good is the white truffle. This delicacy, hailing from the Alba area of northern Italy, stands as the second most expensive food in the world after black caviar.
But there is a silver lining to the golden treat — all of the proceeds will be given to the Holy Apostle Soup Kitchen.
Set to reach deep-pocketed restaurant-goers November 1 to December 15, Caccavale says those interested must submit their order 24 hours in advance.
So, who's ready to dip into those savings?
