New Flatiron eatery's starchy treat with tons of truffles costs a steep $55

The potato has a humble reputation, but there's one starchy Manhattan spud that'll set you back $55.

 

It's not the Yukon itself that's so expensive - it's the truffles on top.

 

"It elevates something that people might consider pedestrian," said Jeffrey Crawford, executive chef of Totally Baked, a restaurant that opened this week at 8 W. 18th St. in Manhattan's Flatiron District. "It's comfort food, but taken to a higher level."

 

The recipe starts with a simple baked Yukon potato - then loads it with truffle butter, truffle oil, heavy cream and shaved pieces of truffle.

 

A side salad balances out the meal.
