Priciest Burger in NYC Debuts as $41

NEW YORK (Jan. 10) - And yes, it comes with fries.

A 20-ounce hamburger fashioned from ultra-tender Kobe beef debuted this week at the landmark Old Homestead restaurant. At $41, it is the most expensive hamburger in the city.

It is the first time the 135-year-old steakhouse has ever put a burger on its menu. The restaurant bills it as ``The World's Most Decadent Hamburger.''

``This is not about price,'' restaurant owner Marc Sherry said Friday, when the restaurant sold nearly 200 of the new burgers. ``This is an event.''

The burgers debuted on Tuesday.

The burger, which has a piece of herb butter in the middle of each patty, comes on a special roll with exotic mushrooms and microgreens - shredded baby lettuce.

Put away the bottled ketchup. The burger comes with a homemade ketchup, mustard or horseradish sauce.

``And it's served,'' Sherry added, ``with our classic garlic shoestring fries.''

They must mean they feed the cattle spent grain that was used to brew beer.

Sorry about the double topic... didn't know it was already on the board.

I dunno... I'd probably shell out the cash to try it at least once.  Might be good.
