As executive chef of Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak in Georgetown, Adam Sobel is responsible for no less than five burgers on the menu. Interestingly, only one of those involves beef, but boy, is it a beef burger (think brisket, short rib, and chuck, blended and cooked over a wood fire, then brushed with red wine butter). Since we're fans of Adam's burger, we asked him for his top five favorite burgers in the capital.
