Even More Crazy Rich Boca

We highlight the lifestyles of the crazy rich in the May/June issue of Boca magazine, but if you want more, we’ve got it:

THE DESSERT

Already a culinary favorite in New York City, Serendipity 3 spread its wings in 2008 and opened its first location outside of the Big Apple at the Boca Raton Resort & Spa. Look at the menu, and you’ll find the sweet and breathtaking Gold Opulence Sundae. The dish includes 50 scoops of gourmet ice cream, sorbets, a handmade chocolate spire, imported French chocolate truffles, and edible 24-carat gold leaf. Want it? Fork over $1,000 and notify the restaurant 48 hours in advance.

THE BOOK

Andreas Vesalius’ landmark medical textbook, “On the Fabric of the Human Body in Seven Books,” ca. 1543 can be found at Palm Beach’s Raptis Rare Books—it’s yours for $350,000, undoubtedly the most expensive book in our fair county. Considered the most important text in the study of human anatomy, the tome is heavy in weight and subject matter. At least it has pictures, in the form of more than woodcut anatomical illustrations. Before you stick it in your beach bag, though, you might want to brush up on your Latin.

THE STROLLER

Your little one might not be ready to drive, but that doesn’t mean they can’t get around in style. Enter the Bentley of strollers—literally. The British motor company created the $450 Bentley Trike, a tricycle for toddlers with a foldable canopy, foot rests, adjustable back support, rotating ergonomic seats, and other features fit for a mini royal.
