The Denny’s that opens Friday in the Financial District will offer a $300 version of its popular Grand Slam wake-up — complete with a bottle of 2004 Dom Perignon Premier Cru Champagne. The breakfast fit for a king is called the “Grand Cru Slam” — but besides the vino, it’s the standard morning eye-opener of eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon. “It’s not an astronomical price for Dom Perignon,” says Mike Capoferri, who was hired by Denny’s to create a “craft cocktail” menu at its first Manhattan location. Yes, the FiDi version of “America’s diner” will also have specialty cocktails that start at $11. The bottle of the good stuff at Denny’s is a bargain compared to top restaurants in the area, which charge more than $400 for the bottle. [NYDN]
