BLT Steak launched its rotating line of political burgers a few weeks ago, full of the usual winks at politics from the Bi-Partisan Burger to the Pork Barrel. Well, they're also on top of current events over at BLT Steak — included on the burger menu is a 99% burger and a 1% burger. Fitting for their location between the Occupy DC camp at McPherson Square and the White House and other power-players who often lunch at the restaurant.
So what exactly do you get with these burgers? For all the 1% out there, $58 buys a Kobe burger with foie gras, gold leaf and Grey Poupon. For the rest of us, the 99% burger is the cheapest of all the burger options — $9.99 for a burger with American cheese on Wonder Bread. Of course, pair it with a side like the $8 french fries or $11 creamed spinach and it's not quite so cheap anymore.
