Burger Week: Widmer Gasthaus's $5 Bourbon-Bacon Stilton Burger

This announcement is part of our 2013 Burger Week (Aug 5-11—happening RIGHT NOW!), where we (and generous sponsors Nicky USA and Widmer Brewing) team with local restaurants and vendors to bring you $5 gourmet hamburgers! (Burger Week is blowing up, so be sure to check our Facebook page regularly to make sure your fave burger isn't sold out for the day!)

Widmer’s Burger Week entry starts with fresh, hand-formed, intensely flavorful Nicky USA beef patties. Gasthaus chef Travis Hansen customizes the job with a smoked paprika aioli, and then the real crowning achievement: a bourbon-bacon jam (slow-cooked with onions, sherry vinegar, brown sugar, maple, onion, and spices) which, when it melds with the burger’s crumbled Stilton, creates a sweet/salty condiment so powerful that they should sell crocks of it for everything from toast to wedding cakes. Standing up to all that is a sturdy, tender, and sound potato-flour bun from Grand Central. I tried this burger on the first day of Burger Week, and there was at least one on every table.
