About 90 dollars if anyone was wondering...
Seems cheaper than the gold flake parfait at Serendipity 3 in Vegas, and on a side note, I thought gold was toxic to the body when ingested in moderate amounts.

Gold is considered biologically inert. It is the impurities in less than pure gold that cause some of the problems over time. Gold itself is not absorbed.

And I thought gold was practically unreactive.

If in an indulgent mood, I'd eat it for the ingredients (see the linked article for the list), not the gold. Probably no more than once, though-- can't be spending that kind of money on one maki on any regular basis.

hell no, why are people eating gold in the first place?
I don't mind putting up a decent amount of money for a decent steak or at a fine restaurant for rare or hard to prepare dishes, but eating something expensive for the sake of it being expensive is just plain stupid.

Why not eat gold leaf on it's own?

Yes gold can be toxic. It is a heavy metal after all. While it is true the gold is used occasionally therapeutically such as for the treatment of RA or Rheumatoid Arthritis side effects do develop in about 1 out of 3 cases. inflammation of skin, or dermatitis, Damage to the kidneys, or nephritis Damage to the platelet function causing thrombocytopenia Purpura, Inflammation of blood vessels, known as vasculitis
Enlarged lymph nodes, or lymphadenopathy, Pruritus or itching, Proteinuria or presence of protein in urine.

These symptoms typically are not long lasting and usually go away without medical intervention.

Longer lasting effects can include Bluish-grey discoloration of skin on the sun-exposed areas. This is known as chrysiasis and is an irreversible condition, Increased pigmentation can also occur in the lens/cornea of the eye; a condition called ocular chrysiasis
Mouth sores, Inflammation of liver, or hepatitis, Bone marrow suppression leading to anemia and frequent infections.

TL;DR Too much gold bad, eat the roll for the novelty do not eat one every day for lunch.

$96 for a sushi roll? No thank you. Not even for the novelty aspect.
