JP’s Burger Entry: Grass Fed
I think Grass Fed on Centre St. got a glowing review in the Boston Phoenix’s Cheap Eats, which is generally enough to get my interest. I’m glad this time I had companions who were just as interested so that we could get a heaping helping of truffle fries along with our specialty burgers and to keep me company in the small space filled with high table tops and unpolished chrome chairs:
The TV wasn’t that helpful considering the sheer number of people milling about but I did appreciate the strategically placed pitches of water:
I got the oyster burger, which may have had a clever name, which I wish I had deconstructed and eaten in two parts:
The bun was strong (although I still prefer Flat Patties’s), the oyster was fresh and delicious albeit over-dressed, and the patty was excellent although I failed to detect the difference between grass fed beef and the all-natural? pasture-raised? beef used by b.good and Flat Patties. However, all together in one sandwich, these components were a bit too much with the richness of the remoulade over-powering the surf n’ turf flavor interplay and leaving me feeling unpleasantly stuffed. I mostly blame the remoulade.
