Washingtonian previously showcased chef Victor Albisu's various politically themed burgers at BLT Steak, notably including the hoity-toity "1%" variety, topped with foie gras, gold leaf and Grey Poupon.
But Young & Hungry hadn't noticed the startling price-tag of the thing until now. Metrocurean has a shot of the menu: $58! How much would you fork over for a slab of kobe beef topped with gold leaf?
The 99%, on the other hand, comes on Wonder Bread for $9.99.
