National Hamburger Month begins May 1 (National Hamburger Day is May 28), meaning my quest for the perfect burger is on again. My first stop is in North Palm Beach County, Fla., home to the burgers at the restaurants at PGA Commons in Palm Beach Gardens and then on to 1000 North in Jupiter, Fl.
Scusi Trattoria’s Executive Chef Laurent Tourondel is the star power behind The Scusi Burger. His burger is topped with portobello mushrooms, balsamic onions, Gorgonzola, and a fried egg. The Scusi Burger is served with hand-cut fries.
The Cooper presents two outstanding nominees for 2021. The Alfred Burger features roasted garlic aioli, Comté cheese, and caramelized onions. It’s served on a challah bun with a side of herb truffle shoestring fries. The Bison Burger is a leaner choice that’s full of flavor. Alfalfa sprouts, avocado, Gruyere, and Dijon aioli dress up up the burger, which is a served on a challah bun with shoestring fries or coleslaw.
Prosecco Café has created a whole new category of burger with the Carolina-style BBQ Pulled Chicken Burger Stack. The hamburger patty is topped with melted cheddar cheese, barbecue pulled chicken, and Southern-style coleslaw, and served on a grilled brioche bun with garlic aioli. Don’t miss out Prosecco’s famous breakfast potatoes.
1000 NORTH’s Prime Burger is eight ounces of prime chuck topped with Vermont white cheddar and served on a toasted brioche bun, with a pickled watermelon remoulade. The Prime Burger at 1000 NORTH comes with your choice of a side, but go with the truffle salt fries with parsley, toasted garlic, and butter.
