Gold Plated

Gold & Pepper goes for the literal gold in SoFi


Bitcoin may be the hot commodity, but you can't hang it from her neck or place it on her finger.

Besides, there's a better way to dazzle her without stepping foot in a jewelry store.

Just take her to Gold & Pepper, where the food is literally golden.

Step inside this quiet corner restaurant and await as pillowy, freshly-made ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta in goat butter sauce is brought to the table, laced in gold. 

Then come the bite-size meatballs served with eggplant in a San Marzano tomato sauce and sprinkled with... gold.

For dessert, nothing beats the gold brownie served with a squeeze of vanilla sauce and topped with (yep) a 23-karat gold leaf.

Top that, Bitcoin.
