What a way to end a year of Surprise!
'Sposed to be on vacation, but after dinner last night, I've been spending a disproportionate amount of time researching the price of the world's most expensive burger.
At $125, the one at Boca Raton's Old Homestead beats out the $99 bun at New York's DB Bistro Moderne...but neither hold a candle to the hunka-hunka-burning beef at Vail's Chophouse Restaurant (an offshoot of the Beaver Creek eatery of the same name and obviously, where I ate last night).
At a walloping $275, it more than doubles its nearest competitor...but there's a catch. Check it out on their menu:
Yeah, yeah, I know that this is more a conversation piece than an epicurean delight, but trust me, as a conversation piece it sure 'nuff did its job. Every table around us pointed to it, laughed at it and talked about it.
One even ordered it (albeit without the Dom) and loved it.
And is still talking about it.
Kudos to the Chophouse for not just adding some Pow! to the usually mundane medium of a menu, but for having a sense of humor (so rare for a high-end resto!).
P.S. Happy New Year, my faithful FOPs.
