It's been too long since I've had a RUB burger. Last night, I finally made it back with a large group of friends. We tried everything from burnt ends to smoked Sichuan duck and ribs, but as always, it was the burger that stood out.
Behold the "Gargiulo Burger," inspired by the burger served at Brennan & Carr. Between a kaiser roll is RUB's fantastic patty topped with roast beef, sauteed onions and cheese sauce. Finally, the whole burger is dipped in beef jus.
Oddly sensual, and dripping with meaty juices, the burger was much easier to eat than it looked, even when split in half. I shared one with Steve (along with a RUB burger). The cheese sauce was subtle, but the onions and roast beef highlighted the patty.
Of course, now I have to try the Brennan & Carr original.
