Why does this burger cost $250?
Pan-Asian resto/burger bar Beer & Buns has plans to open in late March in the St. Giles Court Hotel, and they also have plans to blow your mind with their Indulgence Burger, which will officially be one of NYC's most expensive patties. Coming in at $250, it's made up of Kobe beef, sautéed foie gras, white truffles, and beluga caviar on a homemade bun.
It's not cheap, but hopefully the advanced notice gives you time to start saving your allowance. Also, compared to Fleur de Lys' $5,000 burger in Las Vegas, this is nothin'.
