Nine-Ten Burger

Nine-Ten Restaurant and Bar

Serious Eats
The bubbling blanket of cheese, the creamy glob of Dijon aioli, the almost unnaturally perfect produce [...] all of these elements came together so beautifully...
Serious Eats
... every element of Nine-Ten's burger is precisely calibrated burger perfection, from the bun (a soft and squishy sesame-topped brioche that's made fresh daily, in house), to the garnish (ruby red slices of tomato, lettuce, and various pickled veggies). Underneath that bubbling drape of thoroughly melted cheddar is a loosely packed, coarsely ground, half-pound grass-fed beef patty that's grilled exactly to order. The seasoning is spot-on, as is the execution of the beef, which is striped with grill marks, browned beautifully, and flecked with char. The substantial patty sits on a thick smear of dijon aioli that quickly melts into the meat, imbuing it with even more moisture and flavor. It's that last addition that puts an already delicious burger in danger of causing pleasure blackouts. Yeah, you want this burger.
