Burgers & Beer
The name is generic, so much so that it shows up in other cities. New York has iterations of it, like Brooklyn Burgers & Beer and Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer. Here, the Black Angus burgers are modest, four ounces ($15), with doubles as an option. What distinguishes this spot just added to the string of places, owned along West Fourth Street by Pepe’s Restaurant Group, is that it offers an international roster of burgers: Greek with feta, French onion with Gruyère, Iberico with Manchego and Serrano ham, and Mexican with queso fresco and poblano peppers. You can also create your own from a catalog of toppings, piling on some Brie with jalapeños and mustard sauce if you like. The burgers come on brioche rolls; chicken cutlets and Impossible burgers are other options. Beers are canned, bottled and on draft, and canned wines and soft drinks are offered.
