Snappy Patty’s

January 15th, 2015 by Richard Chudy


True food savants will likely point to the word “slider” as a very specific form of burger with steamed onions and soft and very squishy buns with a credit card thinness of a beef patty as the mainstay. Anything less (or more) than that verges into the mini burger category, and let’s not miss that distinction. Newish Snappy Patty’s in Medford is somewhere in the middle, not quite a slider, not exactly a mini burger and hints of patty melt territory even if they insist on calling them patty melt Sliders (direct from their website).

Harry’s Bar and Burger (Providence, RI)

But, from time to time I may actually (gasp) eat another burger in a different city other than my own. We found ourselves in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on a whim last weekend, and like all good spontaneous road trips with us there is always a copious amount of food involved. We found our way into Moxy, a self-described “Modern American Tapas” restaurant that had been on our radar ever since the last time we visited this lovely city. Not knowing they had a burger on their menu beforehand, we worked our way through their take on small plates, bites and snacks with the harmlessly titled, “grass-fed local beef burgers” just sitting there, mocking me because the inevitable had to happen and I was going to order them. continue reading »
