It’s easily the most expensive burger in town.
Ella Dining Room & Bar’s regular $17 burger (with the egg add-on) was already among Sacramento’s spendiest. Now, Ella has beaten itself. With a $26 burger. Called “The Twenty Six Dollar Burger.”
It reads like a badge of honor, like Hubert Keller’s $5,000 burger in Las Vegas. Of course, that burger came with a $2,500 bottle of Bordeaux. That is beside the point.
The point is that Sacramento now has a $26 burger, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.
The burger in question includes truffled short rib ragu, marrow butter and Mt. Tam triple creme brie—and heirloom tomato, caramelized onion and a buttermilk brioche bun, the more pedestrian necessities. It sounds crazy rich. And, OK, amazing. But also like I’d immediately fall asleep for three hours.
Don’t believe me? Check the lunch menu.
If your mouth is salivating right now, note that “The Twenty Six Dollar Burger” is one of Ella’s September’s nose-to-tail specials. You have 30 days.
