Iconic London members club, Tramp, is to release a limited edition 24k gold burger.
The illustrious club, which has played host to a litany of stars including Frank Sinatra, Sir Michael Caine, Sir Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones and The Beatles over the decades, has launched the burger to celebrate its 50th anniversary year.
When Tramp opened in December 1969, the owners took their lead from the grand, hand-carved ceiling – formerly part of a Freemasons Lodge – that depicted the 12 signs of the Zodiac, by offering 12 Zodiac Burgers on their menu in their 17th Century, wood-panelled Zodiac Restaurant.
These have now been perfected into a single dish, known as the Tramp burger – and it boasts a secret sauce known only to the club’s head chef, which has been carefully passed down through five decades.
Its 50th Anniversary upgrade will see the regular Tramp burger topped with truffle, while the patty will be given an extra special makeover for its golden year, with a 24k gold leaf coating.
The burger will be added to Tramp’s menu from July 19.
Manager David Fleming said: “The burger has been a stalwart of Tramp’s menu for 50 years and we are marking our golden year by giving our signature dish a golden makeover. A burger and fries with foie gras and 24k gold perfectly sums up Tramp: Glamorous and luxurious on the outside, but still down to earth and fun once you get inside.”
