The folks behind The Beehive in the South End opened up the Beat Hotel in Harvard Square and pretty much made a similarly delightful burger. The Prime Burger ($15) is a tall one, staring right back at you like many classic pub-looking burgers before it. The menu offers no hint of what’s to come, but after digging a little deeper I learned this burger comes with a Port Wine aioli, crispy tobacco onions, served on a Hi-Rise potato roll and a side of vinegar slaw. Interesting that none of that is listed on the actual menu and even more interesting that I probably found it more favorable before I learned all that, since you could barely taste any of it. But I digress; it’s forgivable because it’s quite delicious no matter how you slice it. continue reading »

I am thrilled to announce that I am officially writing a burger cookbook with my friend Samuel Monsour (formerly of JM Curley) and it will be published by Union Park Press and is coming out in April 2015!!! We couldn’t be happier to start working on this project, testing out recipes and eating way more burgers than we ever thought possible. We have some unique ideas we are working on that I can’t wait to share with you guys, so stay tuned for many, many updates along the way. Thanks as always for all the ongoing support!
