Celeb Chef Burgers

by Sarah on June 18, 2010

Here’s my boy and me, ready for an awesome night out on the town in San Francisco.  Dinner, a show, etc.

The kid’s 18.  He’s got a sophisticated palate of course, but what do 18-year-olds really like?  Burgers.  So we went to Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar in Union Square.

I wanted to start with some booze, so as I was perusing the beer and wine list, I came across this very rare specimen of beer.  The Pabst Blue Ribbon.  I love the desciption:  “Clear yellow with a darkish tint and a thin white head.  Aroma is full of malts with a sweet undertone of sugar and molasses”.  That evening was the most thought I’d ever given to what Pabst tasted like.

And, while the PBR sounded delightful, I decided to go with this fancy cucumber cocktail.  The kid got a shake.

A very fancy and expensive shake.  I guess you can get them with booze, too.

So the concept of the Burger Bar is that you can choose everything:  Meat, bun, toppings, condiments.  The kid got Kobe with avocado, bacon, caramelized onions.

It ended up being pretty tall.

I got Kobe with the Perigord-black truffle sauce that they make at Fleur-de-Lys.

The sauce was pretty much outta site.  I even dipped my fries in it.  As you can see, the burger is cooked to juicy medium-rare perfection.

AND!  (giggle giggle)

I!

MET!

He was a total sweetheart and this picture is worth the $100 I spent on 2 hamburgers.

The End.
