Andrea Clurfeld, (Rosie's replacement) from NJ monthly, highlight's Drew's bistro burger in today's daily post. "It's the first of an occasional series on the state of the art of that beloved Jersey, and American, staple, the hamburger" It is also part of Drew's new 'Weeknight Out Menu' which will be available all night Tuesday's through Thursday's during the winter months. It will include 3 courses at $35.00 per person plus tax & gratuity. That sounds like a great deal. The burger looks delicious, and he has a lot of his regular items on this menu, including his famous Voodoo shrimp. I wished I lived closer to Drew's so I could take advantage of this deal. I will just have to settle for paying regular (& very reasonable prices) on the third Sunday of each month Below is a description of the burger, as well as the special weeknight out menu, and a link to the article.
"Andrew “Drew” Araneo of Drew’s Bayshore Bistro in Keyport believes in going whole-hog when he creates a dish. (Not surprisingly, he’s known for his pork du jour specials.) So when he does a burger, you can expect he’s going whole-cow.
He starts with a custom beef grind: hanger steak and brisket, with a dollop of chuck. For the burger maven, it’ll be love at first bite.
Drew cooks the burger on a griddle for a firm char. Juicy to the max, it’s redolent of beef and more beef, slapped with American cheese, slathered with bacon-onion jam and topped with house-made pickle slices on a brioche bun.
Many folks were, like me, trying to guess what goes into the Araneo-divined “secret sauce.” The chef won’t say. But he ‘fesses up to adding a bit of yellow mustard. Given the sauce’s rosy Russian-dressing hue, my fellow burger junkies were thinking a squirt or three of ketchup as well."
