According to Meatingplace, the Los Angeles-based Umami Restaurant Group released its “Money’s No Object” burger – M.N.O. for short – at three its locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York locations as part of its annual truffle season promotion.

The limited-time burger, made with Bryan Flannery Wagyu Beef and topped with a port reduction and freshly shaved white truffles, sells for $65. In New York, the burger can be topped with foi gras for an extra $10. Read more.

LA (Calif.) Weekly notes that the burger is a variation of its truffle burger, priced at a more affordable $12. 

As a bonus, The Daily Meal points that M.N.O diners willing to shell out the big bucks would also receive a shirt. Unfortunately for fans, truffle season will be ending soon and with it will mark the end of the popular promotion.

This is where all the progressives and liberals lick the boots for criminal behavior. Only the brain dead are welcome. Boxer, and Feinstein are their favorite customers.

Umami is Foodie Central. A wonderful, caring place where trendy 1st world trust-fund-slurping, obesity-hating, save-the-world activists prefer to meet for casual discussion that certainly will resolve the terrible scourge of 3rd world hunger. If only the unwashed rabble were obedient to concerned superior intellects. Oh, well, our heroes will press on...and relieve the frustration with a $65 hamburger. Only in Amerika, by God!

This is also where all fast foods will go if the FedGov increases the entry level minimum wages to $10=$20 an hour. That will have to fire people or raise all the prices on all their foods. As inflation hits, that will push the prices even higher (think Zimbabwi after they massively printed money without any support for that money). Yes, we could all be paying $65 got a burger and fries, without the truffles added.
