The Nirvana Burger

Go Burger Bar & Grill, New York City, Emilie Bousquet Walsh - January 28th, 2014

"If you happen to be in Denver or Seattle, you might have a taste of these foods. But if you're not, I wanted people to get a taste of those cities from our burgers. For the Nirvana I integrated garlic fries, which are a Seattle staple. Seattle is also known for its obsession with artisanal products, much like Beecher's cheese, which sells in their Pike Place Market."
