A new burger bar in Center City is set to offer what promises to be the most expensive cheeseburger on any menu in the City of Philadelphia — maybe even the United States as it would be laced with gold.
At the bottom of the main page of the menu at the Drury Beer Garden in Philly is not a cheese stake, but a burger, an expensive burger topped with a gold leaf.
For $700, you can get the Gold Standard. That’s a Wagyu meat burger with caviar, fresh black truffle, lobster flambeed with cognac, topped with aged Irish cheddar and drizzled with honey.
As detailed in a statement from the restaurant, the burger will include “eight ounces of Japanese A5 ribeye wagyu, Wexford aged Irish Cheddar cheese, Italian Black Truffle, Italian Caviar, lobster meat flambéed with Louis XIII Cognac, Wildflour Bakery brioche bun topped with gold leaf and fries drizzled with 1500+MGO Manuka Honey”
The extravagance goes on as the burger, owners said, will be served with a 1-ounce pour of Louis XIII cognac, a prestigious cognac that reportedly retails for nearly $5,000 a bottle.
“We are excited to provide our guests some amazing, creative and tasty options with our new menu concept,” he said of the gold burger.
