New York restaurant to sell $250 hamburger

Bishkek (AKIpress) - burger A Midtown of New York City restaurant will sell a $250 hamburger – a bomb comprised of Kobe beef, foie gras, crispy pancetta, white truffles and caviar. Ketchup and mayonnaise are complimentary, NY Daily News reported on March 6.

The Indulgence Burger at Beer & Buns, which will open later this month in The Court Hotel, is the latest mound of beef hoping to land the title of “most expensive burger” in the city.

“We thought about charging $999 for it, but realized no one would buy that,” says Abigail Tan, an executive with the hotel company. “For $250, someone may buy it and split it up.”

It's not the first time burger prices have been overcooked. One of the local restaurants offers a $295 patty with truffles, caviar, gold and even a diamond toothpick – but a portion of the price is set aside as a donation to the Bowery Mission.

Two years ago, another restaurant sold a “Douche Burger” of lobster, caviar, truffles, foie gras and gold leaf for $666.

The original expensive burger was created by chef Daniel Boulud in 2001, when he combined foie gras and ground short ribs. The dish is still on the menu for $32.
