From the Archives: Truffles, Tragedy, and a Sixty Dollar Hamburger

In the last two weeks of the year, On Sandwiches will be featuring select posts from the archives that you may have missed. We hope that you can forgive us these reruns, as we are hard at work on new, ambitious projects. Today’s selection is The Rossini, a Hamburger from Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay:

The opera composer used to tell people that he had only known two moments of true tragedy. The first, he said, was when his mother died. The second was when a truffle roasted chicken fell over the side of a boat, lost forever.
