Would you walk in here expecting a burger..? We didn't.
But with the help of Palm Beach Restaurant Week, we were given the opportunity to meet with Chef Charles Coe (google him - the Chefs got some serious credentials) of Russell's Blue Water Grill in Palm Beach Gardens to try their $10 Bar Burger. It may sound expensive but lets put this into perspective... Many gourmet burger joints are charging upwards of $14-$15 per burger. Even chain locations are now increasing the options and prices... So sitting at the bar of an upscale "Gourmet Comfort Food" restaurant and being able to order a custom made, yes, custom made $10 burger is a deal!
They focus on the meat... as they should.
A very solid 8oz - 4 meat blend of organic grass fed Chuck, Sirloin, Short Rib and Brisket leaves the burger juicy through every single bite. Yes, still only $10...
Sgt. Sauce and I (Lunchbox), have very different tastes when it comes to burgers. As should everyone. There's no right or wrong way to create one, as long as the meat is cooked to your liking and has a fresh flavor.
|Sgt. Sauce: Cheddar, Bacon, Grilled Sweet/Hot Peppers & Shriacha Sauce|
|Lunchbox: Melted Gouda, Mozzarella, Bacon & Grilled Onions|
Still only $10... Price hasn't changed... Fully customized.
Make your way up to Palm Beach Gardens... East of 95 on PGA Blvd (if you cross the bridge, you've gone to far)... take a seat at the bar... have a drink... don't even bother with a menu. Just ask the bartender for the Bar Burger. They are very knowledgeable and ready to customize your burger just the way you like it... No shortage of cheese, mushroom blends, peppers & sauces... Really channel your inner hunger pains and go for it! We did! And our bellies couldn't of been and happier.
