It was a lovely, warm night outside and the place was buzzing. Outside tables had a wait, but given that we were starving and also because the floor to ceiling windows were wide open, we were happy to sit inside. Although we've already tried many burger options here, I picked a variety that was new to me and that I'd love to tell you about, the Pesto Red Pepper Burger.
Pesto Red Pepper Burger - After a weekend of gorging on a lot of not-so-healthy foods, I was in the mood for something earthier and healthier than your traditional beef burger. I chose this fresh tasting pesto burger with turkey meat.
BareBurger's brioche bun is always a plus in my book, so sinking my teeth into this baby was a pleasure - once you got a full bite of the moist burger meat with the melted smoked mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, baby spinach and creamy pesto mayo, your tastebuds went to town. I loved that overall, the burger didn't feel heavy but still left you very satisfied.
Service and Cost:
BareBurger's service is always consistent and this time around was no different. Our order was taken just a few minutes after we sat, our water was always refreshed and the burgers came out in good time, as did the check.
For two burgers and a side salad, we paid $33 with tax and tip.
