As part of Eater's first ever burger week, chefs at five major New York restaurants that don't serve burgers agreed to make a special limited edition burger, served just this week and next. Every day we highlight a new burger. Today, SHO Shaun Hergatt's Lamb Bacon and Ramp Burger.
Chef Shaun Hergatt's food is a mix of local ingredients, French technique, and a few exotic twists. His Burger Week special has a little bit of all of those things: it's a 5 oz flame-grilled LaFrieda short rib patty on a homemade rosemary and parmesan brioche bun, with a local ramp compote, caramelized onions, house-cured grilled lamb bacon, tomatoes, and Cabot clothbound cheddar cheese, available upon request. It's a really smooth combo. The burger comes with a side of pommes pont-neuf — triple fried thick-cut fries with truffle mayo.
