Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was awarded one of Boston’s highest honors, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday, after a Cambridge, Mass., burger joint named its latest creation after the former Harvard Law School dean.
The $9.99 Elena Kagan burger at Mr. Bartley’s Gourmet Burgers comes with onion rings, pineapple and salsa, the paper reported. The latter is meant to signify Kagan’s connection to President Barack Obama, who grew up in Hawaii.
“I thought the coziness [between] her and Barack was inappropriate, but what do I know?” the restaurant’s manager told the paper. “I thought a Supreme Court justice should be further from the president than she is.”
No word yet on whether Kagan plans to try her namesake.
