New York restaurant finds novel way around anti-smoking laws.

A New York restaurant has cooked up a way to beat the city's tough new anti-tobacco ban.
The Italian restaurant Serafina Sandro unveiled a "Tobacco Special" menu on Wednesday, with such delicacies as gnocchi made with tobacco and filet mignon in a tobacco-wine sauce, garnished with dried tobacco.
Tobacco panna cotta -- an Italian cooked cream dish -- is available for dessert, followed by a strong glass of tobacco-infused grappa.
"I never thought tobacco would taste so good," said the restaurant's co-owner Fabio Granato of the rich tobacco flavour. "It tastes better than smoking."

Sounds completely revolting to me. That's somewhere I suspect I might not be dining if I ever visit NY, NY...
