The real deal: David Burke's Primehouse
In response to the current financial crisis, this is the first of in a series of weekly blog posts in which we alert readers to the best food or drink deal that's come across our desk all week. If you've heard of any "real deals," pass them along to email@example.com.
Grass-fed, pasture-raised, dry-aged...if most of your meat consumption consists of fast-food burgers and a Jewel steak every once in awhile, you're not likely to encounter these words much. You, my friend, are not only the majority of Americans, you are also missing out. David Burke's Primehouse is one of a handful of steakhouses in town that dry-ages their prime beef, a process that concentrates the flavor and tenderizes the meat. And of course, you have to pay through the nose to get a taste. But not next week.
To kick off the launch of a new 40-day dry-aged hamburger, the restaurant is offering it for only $5 for lunch all week from October 20 through October 24. The grilled-to-order burger comes on a potato bun with garlicky spinach, smoked bacon mayo and crispy onions. Sure beats the heck out of Quizno's.
