Millionaire’s Potato at RPM Steak, Chicago
At the modern chophouse RPM Steak—a collaboration between chef Doug Psaltis, celebrity couple Bill and Giuliana Rancic, and partners RJ, Jerrod and Molly Melman—regulars and A-listers routinely stop in for the standout seafood and chops (Lady Gaga, LeBron James, Bethenny Frankel, Woody Allen, and Sarah Michelle Gellar have all dined here). One menu item that's driving guests wild? The Millionaire's Potato, double-baked and topped with fontina cheese and black truffles. Photo by Anjali Pinto.
Osetra Caviar Stuffed Baked Potato at Tony’s, Houston
Tony’s lavish dining room has been serving up luxe spins on American and Italian dishes to the city's socialite set for decades, and it's no surprise they've turned the humdrum baked potato into a dressy, sought-after specialty. Their off-the-menu petite baked potato costs a hefty $95, but to fans it's worth the splurge since it comes with a heap of Russian caviar on top. Photo courtesy of Tony's.
Slab Bacon Salt Baked Potato at Mekelburg’s, New York City
