Montreal has welcomed me back with open arms… also known as Burger Week. After a long summer away, the time has come to return to eating in Montreal and writing about it.
Thanks to the wonders of DVR, I was able to record the US Open and leave my apartment long enough to check out the BurgerBar on Rue Crescent (http://www.montrealburger.com/) for dinner with a friend. I’ve never been so happy that she is usually more informed about the local goings-on than I am than tonight when she clued me in to the mac and cheese burger!!! (I’m using three exclamation points for a reason!)
I think it was called the rock and roll burger… a nicely toasted bun, sauteed onions, bacon, a beef burger, cheese sauce, and a patty of deep fried mac and cheese. It was cooked to order, and nice and juicy.
Aside from the hostess who didn’t want to seat us because she said they were full (We were a party of two and it was at least 8:15), the service was very nice and friendly. Our waitress kept coming back to check on us, and was especially pleasant considering how busy they were. I wish they would add this to their regular menu, although I should probably be thankful I can’t overindulge every day. As it is, I can’t wait to eat the leftovers in my fridge.
Definitely check it out if you have a chance!
