Oprah found a new favorite food when she tried this turkey burger at
Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach. “I believe [it] may
be the best turkey burger in the entire world,” she says. The Mar-a-Lago
Turkey Burger will be permanently available at the Trump Bar and Grille in
Trump Tower in New York City, open to the public for lunch and dinner. It
will also be served during lunch in Chicago at Sixteen, the Trump
International Hotel restaurant.
