What better way to commemorate a dead artist than with an overpriced burger?  Philadelphia-based burger joint PYT Burger is setting up shop in the Bowery in NYC, just around the corner from Basquiat’s old digs at 57 Great Jones Street so they’ve decided to add the ‘Basquiat Prime Beef Burger’ to their menu.  The artist’s old haunt is now occupied by an organisation called Japan Premium Beef Inc. PYT staffer Malcolm said: “The guys at JPB made this beef especially for us.  The meat itself costs about fifty-something dollars per pound, and the spices used on that is very high end. It’s like butter, it’s so soft.”  Accordingly, the Basquiat Prime Beef Burger will set you back – wait for it – USD$64.00.  A whole lot cheaper than the artist’s paintings I guess.
