Foie Gras Burger and Craft Cocktails at Best Burger Bar in Brookline (Boston, MA)

There's a burger and bar joint in Brookline that went under my radar because of the rather generic name, Best Burger Bar. However, I was invited to try the place not too long ago and was quite pleasantly surprised! The restaurant opened last summer in 2017.

Best Burger Bar specializes in dry aged burgers, which gives it that extra umami flavor, and they only use certified Angus beef. They also have an outdoor dining area / porch that's open throughout the summer. Get some burgers paired with a Margarita Fishbowl for two ($29.50). The fish bowl has tequila, lime, blue curacao, orange curacao, and sesame syrup.

Their burgers start with a classic for $5.99 and go up from there depending on the ingredients. For the quality of meat they use, this is a good bang for your buck in Boston.

For the ultimate decadent burger, get the Bully Boy Royale ($13.99). It has a black truffle foie gras mousse, Bully Boy whiskey bacon cranberry jam

Yes, it's rich, it'll probably give me heart attack, and it's so worth it. Maybe don't be like me and order that poutine too if you plan on eating this!

For summer, they also have a lobster roll for you non-beef eaters (or just lobster lovers in general). They do Maine-style lobster roll, cold with mayo and the roll was piled up with half pound of sweet lobster meat.

Now, what I didn't realize before was that Best Burger Bar's bar program was the handiwork of Brother Cleve. For those of you who may not know, Brother Cleve is a musician and cocktail historian/legend. This means that the cocktails at this burger bar is legit, from refreshing margaritas to the stronger stirred cocktails. When I went, I had the Negroni ($13) made with Brockman's gin, MEM Assam-tea-infused Campari, Noilly Prat Ambre Vermouth.
