Man finds pearl in his oyster plate in restaurant!
An Edgewater man got quite a surprise when he slurped his oyster pan roast at Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant in New York.
Rick Antosh, 66, found a pearl about a fourth of an inch large in his lunch while on an outing with a high school friend.
“It’s in the rough, and about the size of a large BB or ball-bearing,” said Antosh, who initially thought he had lost a filling or a tooth.
The New York Post reported that the pearl, found in a dish that goes for $14.75, could be worth an upwards of $2,000, though Antosh isn’t sure if he’ll sell or keep the lucky find.
Executive chef of Grand Central Oyster Bar & Restaurant Sandy Ingber said that in his 25 years at the restaurant, only a handful of visitors have found a pearl, though the restaurants sells about 5 million annually.
“That was by far the best oyster pan roast I ever ordered,” said Antosh.
