The $5,000 FleurBurger Experience
Dany Meyer, a restaurateur and chief executive officer of the union square hospitality group stated that “At the base level, a burger is a piece of meat and a bun with something on it. It’s simple but it seems to make a lot of people happy.”
What I am going to introduce today is not just a piece of meat in a bun, it’s an overall experience and it is definitely not going to make everyone happy.
As a matter of fact, the Fleurburger is the second most expensive burger in the world, with an overall price of $5,000. As I said before, it won’t please everyone because it is not at anyone’s reach.
Almost all of us had the pleasure of tasting burgers, some in very fancy restaurants, some in diners and some straight from the fast food restaurant. If you had $5,000 to spend today would you use that money to try this burger?
You must be wondering, what kind of ingredients does this burger have to be ranked the second most expensive burger in the world?
Well here it is, in return of your significant investment, you experience a unique burger composed of kobe beef, foie gras, black truffles, and truffle sauce served on a brioche truffle bun. This must be heaven for all the truffle lovers.
The truffles come from the southwest of France and are worth $1,500 for around 500 grams.
This tasty meal is served with a bottle of Bordeaux, a 1995 Chateau Petrus estimated to be around.
$ 2,500, poured in Ichendorf Brunello glasses, imported from Italy, that you can take home with you once you leave the restaurant. The main reason why you have to pay $5,000 is because of this special bottle of wine.
This piece of culinary jewelry is the creation of Hubert Keller, a French burger lover, who opened his restaurant “Fleur” in Las Vegas in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino where he has sold 27 Fleurburger.
A strategic location don’t you think?
