Kobe Cheesesteak? Only in Kerry Country

Nothing like this ever came from Jim's Posted by Hello

That's right folks, that's a $100 cheesesteak. "This version of the traditional Philadelphia sandwich, made with Kobe beef, melted Taleggio cheese, shaved truffles, sauteed foie gras, caramelized onions and heirloom shaved tomatoes on a homemade brioche roll bushed with truffle butter and squirted with homemade mustard, is served with a small bottle of champagne and sells for $100 at Stephen Starr's Barclay Prime opening Tuesday. " For that kind of scratch you can get yourself roughly 16-17 cheesesteaks and a drink at Jim's on South Street. I can just see John Kerry in front of Geno's telling Philadelphia how he just loved the cheesesteak over at Barclay Prime. "Nothing says Philadelphia like the cheesesteak at Barclay Prime, I remember enjoying one in Cambodia one Christmas not too long ago..."
