Serendipity 3 on the Upper East Side, 225 E 60th St, New York, NY 10022, features the world's most expensive hamburger. The $295 burger, available with 48 hours of notice, is called Le Burger Extravagant.
The Burger contains Japanese Waygu beef, 10-herb white truffle butter, smoked Pacific sea salt, 18-month cheddar, shaved black truffles, a quail egg, and a white truffle-buttered roll. The French name adds a note of style. The finishing touch, and the main reason for the high price, is a solid gold Fleur de Lis toothpick encrusted with diamonds and designed by jeweler Euphoria New York.
Half the proceeds from this burger go to help the Bowery Mission.
