Burger Week at Stone Rose - YUM
Burger Week at Stone Rose – YUM – Happening Now
by Brian Coll
First of all, I didn’t take the photo. I couldn’t wait to get to my burger, so I had to take it from the Stone Rose. After we were done one of us joked that we didn’t take a photo of the burgers.
We talk about this every year, because we love it every year. If you know us at Conshystuff, you know we don’t write about stuff just because we got a press release or because we owe someone a favor or something. We talk about stuff we love around Conshy and this is certainly one of the things we LOVE!!!!!
I think the Stone Rose has been doing a burger week every year since they opened. Actually I think they missed one year, I don’t remember if it was due to the fire they had a few years ago or if they were in the midst of renovating Bar Lucca, the owners of the Stone Rose also own and operate Bar Lucca as well as Cerdo, both great places in their own right, but Stone Rose will always hold a special place in my heart, and it’s probably because of burger week.
We went last night, 4 of us and a couple years ago the same 4 of us couldn’t figure out who was getting which burger and if anyone was willing to share….. so we ordered a table burger as an appetizer. What a good call. You can do this if you would like, but we want some credit for it!!!!! So, this year we did the same thing, we pulled the trigger on an appetizer burger.
Here are the special burgers offered this year:
Aged Cheddar, Fried Egg, Speck, Avocado Mayo served with Fries
Wild Boar Burger
Gorgonzola, Candied Bacon, Fried Shallots served with Fries
Fontina Cheese, Cranberry Jam, Truffle, Mushrooms served with Truffle Fries
Goat Cheese, Cucumber Yogurt, Pickled Red Onion, Arugula served with Fries
So the 4 of us split the Wild Boar Burger, the bacon is still being talked about 20 hours later. And then two of us ordered the lamb and 2 of us ordered the bison burger, all were cooked to the chef’s recommendation and were perfect. There was a tense few minutes were I thought someone would try to talk to me while I was enjoying my burger…. but I think we were all ready for the burgers.
Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to my friends, and I could still be sitting there talking with them, but when the burgers came… we hit pause on the conversation.
If you don’t have dinner plans one night this week, really think about going, alone, or call some friends. It’s worth it. I love the fries as well. It is something I think the Stone Rose has got right from day 1, perfect fries with a special sauce.
Thank you to my friends who joined me last night and each of the past few years. I’m pretty sure at least one of the 4 of us is going back tonight. The burgers are really that good, so good you might want to go back and try another burger the next night, and the next night and the next……
