Why kill the American Dream if you don’t have to?! These luxury burgers make the Golden Arches look, well, less golden.
11. The Rossini, $60.00
This burger from Burger Bar in Las Vegas was named for the great composer. This burger consists of (what seems to be) the standard combination of Wagyu, truffles, and foie gras.
10. FleurBurger 5000, $70.00 or $5000.00 (it’s up to you)
A bottle of ’95 Pétrus is what takes this otherwise “typical” luxury burger from being $70 to $5000.
9. The Tri-Burger, $100.00
The now inoperative Old Homestead Steak House in Boca Raton decided to forget about fancy accoutrements and focus on what was most important: the beef. This burger is a mix of American, Wagyu, and Argentinian.
8. DB Royale Double Truffle Burger, $140.00
Purportedly the luxury burger that started it all in New York, the DB Double Truffle Burger has truffles on the inside and the outside.
7. The Richard Nouveau, $150.00
Though its restaurant is now closed, this burger’s legacy lives on. A great burger to “show off” to other Wall Street wolves, this Kobe burger came equipped with gold flakes.
6. The Burger, $190.00
While all of the other burgers featured on this list hail from the USA (of course), this one is found in London. It’s made with Wagyu, topped with truffles, pata negra, Cristal onion straws (what?), and nestled between two Iranian truffle and saffron buns. Sounds phenomenal, right? Here’s the kicker: it’s from Burger King.
5. Le Burger Extravagant, $295.00
Along with the blini, quail egg, caviar, diamond-encrusted gold toothpick, etc., this burger also gets points for its French name and the fact that it comes from the famous Serendipity 3.
4. The Douche Burger, $666.00
This burger strives to be the Antichrist of Le Burger Extravagant and does so with aplomb. There’s the name, the price, and the fact that it’s served up in gold foil from a food truck called 666 Burger by a guy in a mink coat. I love New York.
3. The 777 Burger, $777.00
Like its other Las Vegas counterpart, this burger’s price is elevated mostly due to the inclusion of an expensive libation, Dom Pérignon.
2. The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger, $2000.00
This burger comes from Mallie’s in Detroit and they decided to go with the simple adage of “go big or go home” and go big they did, with a 340 lb burger.
1. Cultured Beef Burger, $330000.00
You could say that this burger is literally and figuratively cultured. Raised in the Netherlands and cooked in London, this burger was also conceived in a petri dish.
