The reason why the Father's Office burger is worth jumping over? Because it's one of the best damn burgers in town. But why? What makes their signature Office burger so damn good? You check their website and though it's pretty in Flash and the sounds are cool, you don't get much of an answer. You hop over to Yelp and you scan through the hundreds of reviews but you still can't find your answer. Then you look at that first picture here at theMET. You are transported to their restaurant - you see a burger filled with sweet carmelized onion marmalade, fresh arugula, and delicious gruyere and blue cheese smothered over a juicy sirloin patty. The bun is slightly crispy on the outside but warm to the touch. It's the perfect thickness - balancing the saltiness of the meat while still adding its own flavor to the overall creation. For $11 you know this is expensive but you can taste the freshness in the food, and it's definitely unlike any burger you've eaten... Ketchup is not allowed and don't even ask for substitutes or for anything to be taken out of this burger, they'll shake their head and kindly slap your hand for asking. Because this burger was meant to be eaten this precise way... And that, my friends, is totally badass.
