$41 burger

unreal......

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.

Kobe beef, imported from Japan, comes from cattle raised on beer and massaged daily to make the meat soft and succulent.

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.''

Ummm, I know a little bit about cattle nutrition, and I can't believe they can subsist on beer alone.......

i think all the effort in rasing a cow raised on beer and massaging it daily is ridiculous. In fact, giving a cow beer is silly. Really, who wants a drunk cow? And massaging the cow every day is even weirder. Think: People actually get PAID to do these jobs. Massage cows.....

Considering the burger is $41, I am now thinking about raising my own cattle to massage and feed beer.

What the fuck?

I want to know what kind of world we live in where people justify feeding beer to cows, the cattle recieving daily massages so that some overprivileged bufoon can scarf down an inordinate amount of cholesterol, all for the basement bargain price of $41.

Unreal.

I am curious as to why so many people here are so shocked by this.

People, this is New York, as the almighty Perry Farrell once said,







"Nothing's Shocking."






I am sure I have paid close to that for an entree here (which sucks), and the fact that it is Kobe Beef, you know you are going to take a beating in the wallet for ordering it.



Who cares anyway - everyone who is anyone (said with DEEP sarcasm) knows that the best hamberger served in New York City is served at a place called the Corner Bistro.

Corner Bistro is an old bar in the West Villiage and the berger is served on a paper plate and that is all they really serve. it costs about $3.00 and with a Pint of McSorley's Ale, you cannot go wrong...
