Oct. 20 (UPI) -- A New York hotel announced the return of one of its most famous limited-time menu items -- a gold-topped bagel with a $1,000 price tag.

The Westin New York hotel in Times Square announced the $1,000 bagel, which had a limited run in 2007, is making a return to the hotel after multiple requests.

The pricey bagel's toppings include goji berry infused Riesling jelly, gold leaves and Alba white truffle cream cheese.

"Pound for pound, the white truffle is the second most expensive food in the world, next to caviar," the hotel said.

The hefty price tag includes tax and gratuity, the hotel said. All proceeds from sales of the bagels will be donated to the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.

The bagels will only be available from Nov. 1 until Dec. 15, and interested guests are being instructed to order their decadent breakfast foods 24 hours in advance.
