The Week’s Most Intriguing Burgers 1/29

I can report to you that the state of the burger is strong, creative and fun. As evidence I point to the burgers here from burger bar and chain menus in the past week or so. January has proven to be an unexpectedly busy month for menu innovation, not just by the top chains but also by independent burger bars. Here we have burgers with baked beans, house-made pastrami, deep-fried pickles and even rutabaga. There’s just no end to the number of possibilities.
