We head over for Sunday brunch, when the burger is on the menu. We showed up at the tail end of brunch – make sure to make a reservation, as it was super busy when we first arrived. Parking can be tough in this area – make sure to leave enough time to circle the block a few times if you’re driving.
We had to balance out eating burgers with something else, so we ordered the House made semolina spaghetti ($18) with boudin noir ragout, scallions and a farm fresh egg. I love anything with an egg on it – it gives the dish a lovely creamy texture and I love the salty flavor. A delicious dish.
Local grass fed burger ($17 + $3 fried egg) with Shelburne Farm cheddar, mace ketchup, house-made bun, crispy potato fries (add fried egg 3, add house-smoked bacon 3) Of course we added the egg! This burger was my favorite of all the ones we tried. The burger was flavorful and it may sound funny, but it felt light. Some burgers just sit in the bottom of your stomach like a rock, after we finished this one (too quickly I might add) we were ready for round two (but don’t worry, we didn’t).
Thanks to our friends at SoonSpoon who tweeted at us while we were at brunch and recommended we get the donut ($5). How can you not love a place that has a donut as a “side”?
