Raoul's Bar Burger - The Return
April 7th, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

Event Description

On April 7 at noon, we return to Raoul's for a midday massacre of their elusive Bar Burger. For those who missed our first outing, this gorgeously Gallic slab of ground beef comes seared in butter and topped with triple cream Saint-André cheese, cornichons, red onions, and a tangle of watercress. And then you DIP THE WHOLE F-ING THING IN CREAMY AU POIVRE SAUCE. The French may be a refined people, but this is downright savage and I am 100% ok with it.

Normally you can only get this at the bar, and can only get 12 in a night. But we, being the cultured, connected chaps and chappettes that we are, will have a table for 8, with our burgers delivered to us by an esteemed garçon. We'll also have an extra 4 slots for those who want to do it at the bar, like god intended.

So come taste what Esquire called "The best burger in America," you'll be glad you did.

Love the peppercorn in this burger. The side of the au poivre is Pulitzer. I’m sufficiently full, what more can I say?

This is a delightful burger...a taste explosion that changes with each bite. A complex melding of flavors from creamy to peppery to salty to crunchy to smooth, and everything in between. Only complaints - the meat is masked by the many other players on the field, and the $8 surcharge for seated service - while admirably accurate to the french roots of the restaurant, caused value to take a hit.

Andrew, once again, was watchless and late. 3/10.

The burger was delicious but the beef was overwhelmed by the pepper crust and toppings. Great texture, great flavor overall but not on par with some of its similar-priced brethren.

Burger was fantastic, but a few critiques. Pepper was a little overwhelming on the burger so I had trouble getting the true flavor of the beef. I also felt like I was done with the flavors by the last quarter of the burger. And, the fact that the price of the burger was $8 less at the bar vs the same thing at a table seems kind of ridiculous, so that is impacting value. Cool venue though and the burger was definitely high quality and cooked well.
