Burger Bar San Francisco is Hubert Keller’s gourmet burger joint that opened in October 2009. He runs the highly respected fine dining Fleur de Lys French restaurant in San Francisco. This location is on the sixth floor of Macy’s. We have eaten at the Vegas location and could not wait for this one to open. They serve burgers, salads, and sandwiches. You can build your own burger with all sorts of goodies. We avoided the crazy expensive Kobe beef, $60 Rossini foie gras, truffle burger. No sense in overdoing a burger.
They have their own butcher shop that hand mixes prime quality meat daily, so no worries over cheap ground beef.
Atlantic Salmon Sandwich ($12) was a huge sized filet on a ciabatta bun with oyster mushrooms, asparagus, and aioli on the side. Simple, tender, juicy, healthy and delicious. If you don’t eat red meat, try this ‘burger’, you will be surprised how good it is.
Buttermilk zucchini fries ($3.95) were crispy but not very greasy. Nice batter and some fresh zucchini in the middle.
Black Angus Beef Burger ($13.75) with American cheese, bacon, grilled onions, and portobello mushrooms was cooked to a slightly more well done medium rare that we would like, making it not very juicy. This was a huge piece of meat. The mushrooms and onions were plentiful and tasty. The sesame bun was big, fresh, and very good. Stick to one or two toppings to keep it affordable.
Vanilla shake ($7) was a very tall shake with whip creamy and a cherry. Very smooth ice cream, not too sweet, and light whipped cream made it perfect.
Chocolate Shake ($7) added a layer of chocolate syrup to the mix. Very chocolaty and velvety. A must get for chocoholics.
