Soup Kitchen Chef Serves up $73 Side of Caviar

How much would you pay for a seven-course meal that starts with a $73 serving of caviar?

For the needy who dine at Broadway Community soup kitchen on the upper West Side, the answer is $0.

That's because the chef at the W. 114th St. soup kitchen got a special donation this Christmas: a 500-gram, $1,100 tin of Petrossian Malossol sturgeon caviar.

"We do this 52 weeks a year, and it's not usually about the fancy," said Michael Ennes, chef at the low-income advocacy organization Broadway Community. "But when someone gives you an $1,100 tin of caviar, it gets fancy."
