A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

TradeI was asked by Tastetrekkers to do a guest blog post about my top 5 _______. With summer just around the corner, and Battle of the Burger in August, the likely choice for me was top 5 burgers. There is a certain familiarity with a burger – no matter where you travel, you feel like it’s a safe choice – you know what you’re going to get. People are more likely to try rare game meat like bison or elk if it is in burger form. But I digress. My first stop was to Trade in the Financial District. (See my second stop, Liquid Art House here)IMG_1583They have a great space with amazing floor to ceiling windows. I was there at lunch time and it went from this to bustling in a blink. James Beard award winner Jody Adams co owns Trade with restaurant industry veterans  Sean Griffing and Eric Papachristos. Chef Andrew Hebert came out to talk to me about his burger.

IMG_1598The burger starts with Pineland Farms ground beef and pancetta, top that with Vermont cheddar, lettuce, tomato, house-made pickles and onion all on top of an iggy’s brioche bun ($15). Great burger! The bun stands up to the burger, which is key, there’s nothing worse than having the bun fall apart halfway through your burger. The flavors all meld together well – the saltiness from the pancetta, the sweetness of the onions and the bite of the house-made pickles. The burger patty is flavorful – adding the pancetta to it makes it stand out from the crowd. Have you voted for the Trade burger in the Battle of the burger? Every time you vote you are entered into a drawing to win 2 free tickets to the Battle of the Burger on August 13th.
