National Burger Month at Rok:Brgr
It's National Burger Month, and Rok:Brgr is celebrating with one of its most indulgent offerings yet: an American Wagyu Kobe burger with foie gras, topped with a special blend of truffle cream Brie cheese. The ten-ounce burger features a blend of Kobe brisket and chuck with blood orange marmalade on a brioche bun. Summer truffles are shaved tableside and sprinkled throughout. The burger is served with a side of large truffle fries and will be on the menu throughout May. It's priced at $50.
Gulfstream Park and Häagen-Dazs will offer free cones, along with entertainment for families during the promotion.
