I know its early in the day and y’all are probably starting to get hungry, but I just saved you the step of sifting through the Food Network’s ‘Top burgers from Coast to Coast‘ slide show to find the one that matters most, Saison with their famously tasty burger.
Come in at slide #40, though it doesn’t seem to equate to any ranking, is the local spot’s patty deal which you can read more about below via Food Network:
Saison owners Chef Adam Hall and Jay Bayer are two rural Virginia boys who share a passion for travel, Southern fare and homebrewed beers. They’ve brought those elements together at their Richmond place. Here they combine old and new techniques with flavors and styles that honor the South and its many global influences. The Saison Burger leans toward the all-American side of the menu. It starts with local sirloin ground by JM Stock Provisions. Rather than source the cheese, Hall makes his own smoked American, a combination of smoked cheddar and white wine set with carrageenan and sodium citrate. The cheese-smothered patty comes topped with housemade ranch dressing, pickles and Bibb lettuce. Hand-cut fries finish the plate.
Well now I want a burger from Saison. I usually just buy a sixer and sit on their patio, but looks like next time I’ll be snagging a burger too.
