Umami's $100 White Truffle Burger, Updates on Ellen DeGeneres' Vegan Resto, MORE!

AROUND TOWN— And then... Umami launched the $100 burger with fresh white truffles. BAM. It's called the MNO Burger, or Money's No Object Burger, and is basically a riff off the regular truffle burger with upgraded ingredients: "...extremely rare grass-fed Wagyu... Grade-A Hudson Valley foie gras, an onion marmalade and reduced 1977 Croft Vintage Port...As the final topping... about a 1/4 inch of freshly shaved Italian white truffles." Obviously this is a seasonal burger but it's only available by advanced order for private events. [EaterWire]
