What's the most expensive sandwich in DC?

With tax and tip, the corned beef sandwich at Central is $20. I think Ray's has a fois gras burger around the same amount. What's the most a restaurant is charging for something stuffed between two pieces of bread? Would you be willing to pay for it?
$20 incl. tax and tip is what, $15 or $16 depending on your tip? I don't begrudge that to a very nice restaurant with huge overhead and good food, but maybe that means I'm too lucky or something.
Anyway, I have never been to BLT Steak, but googled it upon seeing your question, and they'll sell you a steak/foie sandwich for $28, and no sammich is below $16. Warning - the web site plays music that won't turn off. Lunch menu at http://www.bltsteak.com/PDF-DC/lunch-...
Wasn't there a place in DC offering a kobe hotdog that was really expensive?
At some point, there was some ridiculous "race" to see who could have the most expensive burger. I believe some place in NYC won, but only because they threw in some $1,000-plus bottle of Dom Perignon.
I wonder if anything in DC is equally ostentatous when it comes to sandwiches.
