Tonight Kitty Ball and I dined at 8 Ounce Burger Bar. My friend who manages it has been trying to get me in to taste the famous burger. Of course the night I pop in, he’s out. But it’s not like he’s the one grilling, so we piled into a booth and began to parse the menu.
I gotta say, as I type, I don’t feel like I just ate a delicious, juicy, smoked beef burger. (You know, usually you’re stuffed and distraught with guilt. I feel neither.) Chef Govind Armstrong is not messing around with simplicity when it comes to a beef/turkey/veggie patty. Each bite packs a punch of flavor. Interesting additions (all organic) like grilled balsamic red onions provide even more depth to the perfectly packaged sandwiches. It’s almost like drinking good wine: in one mouthful there are so many things going on to experience and appreciate. Click here for the menu.
You can wear jeans and a white T to enjoy the meal, but you might want to spruce a little. The crowd is trendy and good looking. With the 80’s rock in the background creating a fun vibe, you never know who you could meet.
