Ravenous Burger (Healdsburg)

I couldn't let another summer pass without having a Ravenous Burger. Well, I missed the season by a couple days but managed to squeeze one in for lunch today. The patio was full so I took a seat inside near the front window where I could view the cottage garden and rose bushes in bloom.

The extra juicy burger ($11) was perfect and rare as ordered. Ignore the tough and somewhat dried out thick cut oven fries. The garnishes were great, a couple thick slices of heirloom tomato, baby greens, onion confit, dijon mustard, and a snappy kosher dill pickle spear on the side. A few cloves of roasted garlic were offered for extra pizzaz. What made this extra special was the lightly grilled bun from Downtown Bakery. Almost brioche-like in its airy texture, this hamburger bun had the resiliance to wrap around this juicy and thick combo and sop up the juices without falling apart. Loved it.
