$175 for a burger

By Sheryl Julian Globe staff December 29, 2015

Five years ago, the $21 burger at The Bristol Lounge at The Four Seasons was considered so expensive, only the 1 percent could indulge.

Turns out to be chump change.

The man said to have started the craze, Daniel Boulud, now offers a $110 double-truffle burger at DB Bistro Moderne in New York.

On New Year’s Eve, as part of his “secret burger” line, Michael Scelfo of Alden & Harlow in Harvard Square is making a $175 burger that begins with 8 ounces of his house-grind Creekstone Farms beef from Kansas.

10. The Rossini – $60

Available in The Burger Bar branches in Las Vegas,


1. The Fleurburger 5000 – $5,000

Yes, you read the price right, we did not mistakenly add another zero. This creation by chef Hubert Keller can only be had at the newly reopened Fleur Restaurant in Las Vegas. What makes the burger so expensive is that the patty is made of Kobe beef which is already very expensive, it also has foie gras, shaved black truffles and a brioche truffle bun. It’s also served with a bottle of 1995 Chateau Petrus. It also comes accompanied with the traditional French fries as well as the wine.
