Company Burger, and the Simpsons

Burgers are the local culinary trend of the moment (along with pizza and hot dogs), and The Company Burger brings the trend to the new restaurant row along revitalizing Freret Street.  A couple of weeks ago, I sampled the lamb burger and the turkey burger, along with the sweet potato fries.  (Don’t worry, the menu has an all-beef burger, as well as a pork belly corndog for those with stock in Lipitor.)

The burgers were solid:  ample patties in fresh buns, dressed with interesting flavors (tomato jam, arugula, green goddess dressing for the turkey; feta, basil mayo, red onions, and chili-mint glaze for the lamb).  But both missed the mark, to my palate:  the sweet elements overwhelmed the savory.  Next time, I’ll ask for the sugary stuff on the side.

And now for the Simpsons….in case you missed last Sunday’s episode in which Marge and the kids start a food blog, I share this musical number:  “Blogging a Food Blog”.  Watch for Guy Fieri riding Paul Prudhomme like a kids’ hoppity ball.

  1. Glad you warned me. I despise sweet things on a burger. Been meaning to give them a try but every time I pass by they’re packed. I do not fight for food 😉
