What are some of the worst conceived burgers in Manhattan?

There's lots of great burger in the city -- and I mean *lots* -- but there are also a fair share of really ill-conceived burger.
My vote goes to the DB Burger at DB Bistro. It's just wrong on so many levels. First, it's too big (vertically speaking). Second, I don't want foie gras *in* my burger, or even on it, or even around it. Third, what the hell is black truffle doing in there, and this is on top of the foie. And lastly that bun was greasy like those Sizzlers cheesebreads.
Bad go all around.
And, oh yeah, it's like over $30.
Do you have a contender?
Agree on the DB burger. Had it years ago. The burger itself was dense and dry. The foie was too dark, overdone. The whole thing was difficult to eat and I found it odd to have a messy, ill conceived dish at an upscale, expensive restaurant. An overpriced conceit. I also don't understand fried onion rings on a burger, usually along with too many other components. The rings get soggy and usually fall out anyway. Have em on the side. Julia Child made a burger a while back in which she blended in sour cream. Was juicy and tasty.
