Put a Burger on it!

The pseudo-Spring strawberry salad I brought for lunch the other day didn’t look like it was going to hit the spot. Luckily, Rittenhouse Tavern just re-opened for lunch recently (Wed-Fri only) and since it’s only a few short blocks from work – plus everyone was out of the office for a training – I figured I’d extend my lunch hour a bit and finally check out their burger. The burger itself is a Pat La Frieda dry aged blend, topped with a special sauce, provolone and watercress, and sits on a soft, brioche roll.

I ordered the burger medium but it was slightly on the medium well side; no pink but still nice and juicy. The dry aged meat gave the burger a lot of flavor (plus, it’s Pat La Frieda meat so how can you go wrong?). And watercress is quickly becoming my favorite green burger topping alternative to lettuce (Bobby’s Burger Palace also uses watercress on their LA Burger).

It was a little gloomy out when I went, so the bar was completely empty. But they are planning on having their amazing backyard patio open on sunny days, so extend your lunch break and head on over to Rittenhouse Tavern to check it out.

Burger Rating: “B+”
