This belgian stack of martial artistry, is a real uppergut punch to your average brunch. Beefy in all the right places, this knife and forker comes stacked with a Belgian liege waffle, dijon mustard, two smashed patties, applewood smoked gruyere, country ham, an over easy duck egg, AND parmesan bechamel for days. Your move, team Chuck Norris.
Ian MacKaye influenced and DC Veg Fest inspired, this hardcore burger is TOTES straight (v)edge. With a grass fed beet patty (I kid…), crispy brussel sprouts, shallot confit, and black garlic aioli, this red and black stack of umami angst is certain to strike vegan dischord in the hearts of the burger mainstream.
This week’s pumpkin plumper (plumpkin?) only comes in one size, extra grande. With a coffee rubbed beef patty, slathered in a pumpkin aioli, caramelized onion, pumpkin spice duck bacon, tomato, and a bright herb salad, this stack-o-latern is surely a smug smiley, flick’n the sign of the horn.
Bueno. This Basque beauty is a pinch sweet, a pintxo salty, and all kinds of Spanish lisp-y. Behold, this braised oxtail burger comes served in it’s own sherry fortified jus, topped with seared foie gras, candied Jamón Ibérico, and skewered to a crispy slice of country bread lathered in a roast physalis, shallot compote. San Sebastián… you complete me.
What’s more ‘Merica than a burger crafted from it’s capital’s very own culinary traditions. Ok, maybe taxation with representation… but that’s a different blog. This District denizen bleeds red, white, blue, and beef cheek chili. With a patty constructed from 13th Street Meat’s half smoke grind, Gordy’s pickle relish, and a DC Brau battered, french fry bun… drizzled in mumbo sauce—America, this star spangled beaut is for you.
This self satisfying stack of gratification could make a nun weak in the knees. With a lightly fried, smoked trout patty, dressed in an Old Bay, bacon potato salad, and a spicy dollop of Gordy’s Cherry Pepper Spread, even Harry Potter would be jealous of this wand(a).
This week’s burger might just be the perfect storm. A grass fed beef and pork sausage patty with whipped avocado crema, crispy chile ancho rubbed carnitas, purple cabbage slaw, and a slightly smokey grilled pineapple butter, make this lil’ piggy a true a force of nature.
