I’m not sure if this should be featured on Food Network or Discovery Channel’s “Build It Bigger.” Red Robin Gourmet Burgers’ new Wise Guy Burger is a skyscraping blend of appetizer and entrée, or a cross between burger and pizza. Or both.
Whatever, it has possibilities. Yes, there’s a burger patty in there, and yes, those are mozzarella sticks propping up the bun. Also joining the party are marinara sauce, pepperoni slices, sliced banana peppers and tomato slices. It’s a limited-timer, available through Nov. 8 and priced in most locations at $9.49.
Also on the fall LTO menu is a Chicken Caprese Burger that continues the Italian theme with sliced mozzarella, balsamic-marinated tomatoes, pesto aïoli and Romaine lettuce topping a charbroiled chicken breast on a ciabatta bun. For those still hungry, a Caramel Apple Smoothie is the third menu addition.
