When can we expect the $200 half smoke?

It was only a matter of time, but someone finally killed the cheesesteak - by adding a bunch of crap to it and charging $100.

The Barclay Prime created a "haute" version of the Philly food landmark, this one with, "butter poached lobster and shaved truffles", as well as kobe beef, according to a local CBS report.

So does anyone actually buy this thing? According to Chef James Locascio an average of five or six a night order this culinary monstrosity.

So, will you be heading to the City of Brotherly Love for a $100 cheesesteak this weekend?

That is too horrifying. I'm fasting right now and that doesn't sound appetizing, in all honesty. Why!? Why would they take delicious lobster and kobe beef and put them on a sandwich together!? This is awful, I feel sick.

Why? Why ruin the cheese steak, with Kobe beef and lobster of all things?! Now I may be allergic to lobster, but even if I weren't that sandwich just sounds gross.
