$300 Burger?!?!

I may look terrible in this picture but the humidity was out of control on this very hot July day in New York two years ago!  We were visiting my favourite city in the world for a few days and Jer made reservations at Serendipity 3 for my birthday dinner.  It's a very famous restaurant in Manhattan that's been featured in movies, tv shows and is a hot-spot for celebrity sightings.  There weren't any there on this particular night, but they do have a map that shows which celebrities frequent the place and what exact tables they reserve.  Super cool! 
Well today I read a story that I just had to share with you.  Serendipity 3 is in the news for offering a burger with a $295 price tag!  What the?  That wasn't on the menu when we were there;) 

A burger worth almost 300 bucks looks like this:

- Wagyu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter
- Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt
- Hand-formed cheddar cheese that's been cave-aged for 18 months
- Shaved black truffles
- Fried quail egg
- White truffle-buttered Campagna roll
- Blini, crème fraiche
- Kaluga caviar, farm-raised in Quzhou, China
- Speared with a solid gold, diamond encrusted 'Fleur de Lis' toothpick by jeweler Euphoria New York

Now I know y'all are going to rush out and taste this concoction, of course!  But make sure to give them 48 hours notice.  Would you ever spend this much on food? 
Interesting, when Jer took me there for my birthday there was no mention of a burger with diamonds. 
But yes we did enjoy their Frrrozen Hot Chocolate.  To die for!
