The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 2/12

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 2/12

The variety in this week’s burgers is especially appealing. There’s bison and brisket, slides and a breakfast sandwich, truffled mashed potatoes and Cheddar popcorn. When people ask what I mean by intriguing, I may just have to send them here. I’m trying a different format for the Intriguing roundup here, one that allows a little […]

Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Burger of the Month Specials: Feb. 2016

Happily, this wasn’t what I expected. With Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day crowded into February, I expected lots of Creole, Cupid and Honest Abe Burgers of the Month specials. And there are a few clever holiday-themed burgers in the list. Bobby Flay has a Louisiana Burger at his Bobby’s Burger Palace chain and […]

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/29

I can report to you that the state of the burger is strong, creative and fun. As evidence I point to the burgers here from burger bar and chain menus in the past week or so. January has proven to be an unexpectedly busy month for menu innovation, not just by the top chains but […]

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Butter Becoming Burger Battleground

Burger joints can load up burgers with wild toppings. It’s part of  burgers’ charm. But one of the hottest ingredients seems to be a staple of any restaurant kitchen: butter.

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/22

To balance this week’s continuing discussion of U.S. value menus, I thought I’d close the week with some interesting burgers introduced outside the U.S. There are no discount burgers here; just full-throttle creative builds, including an El Chapo Burger from Canada. With buffalo, reindeer and prawn patties and toppings from fig marmalade and horseradish relish […]

The Works Launches Rockstar Burgers

The Works Launches Rockstar Burgers

Canadian chain The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro didn’t get the 2013 memo that multi-item promotional menus were over. Burger King and others quit doing seasonal menus then but The Works keeps launching series after series of wild burgers. With its three-burger “Get Stuff’d” LTO menu (including the now-famous candy-filled Reece PBC burger) just concluded, The […]

The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/15

All the discussion of chicken sandwiches this week had me craving a beef burger, so we’ll close the week with nine interesting ones (plus one chicken) on burger concept menus around the world. With toppings ranging from eggplant, corn chimichurri and apple slaw, these burgers show that 2016 is under way in style.

Shake Shack Finally Chickens In

Shake Shack Finally Chickens In

Brooklyn no longer has an exclusive on Shake Shack’s Chick’n Shack sandwich with the chain’s announcement today that the much anticipated rollout of the item is here. Almost all U.S. locations (not JFK airport or stadium sites ) now will serve it. This decision has been applauded by these three constituencies: 1) Chicken sandwich lovers. […]
