AHT: Portland Nathan Tucker 3 comments

The toppings on at least one of this fancy banh mi joint's burgers are enough to make a purist reconsider a predilection for the simplicity of beef and bun, but no toppings, innovative or otherwise, can save a lackluster patty. More

Expand Your Vocabulary and Get a Superb Burger at Ink & Elm in Atlanta

AHT: Atlanta Todd Brock 15 comments

Ink & Elm is pretty up front about wanting to be both "casual" and "comfort-driven," yet "refined" and a "destination." That can be a tough twofer to pull off under one roof. So it's not surprising that Ink & Elm's signature burger has a little Jekyll-and-Hyde thing going on, too. More

The Monte Cristo Burger at Umami Burger Is Better Than You'd Expect

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 8 comments

Designed in collaboration with Ink chef and former Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, this burger is topped with Busseto prosciutto and Gruyère fondue and served on a French toast-ified bun dusted with powdered sugar. A first glance it seemingly appeals solely to gluttonous masochists and lovers of a good culinary mashup. Sadly, I am both. More
