I am a fan. I rooted for him. Although he lost to Rick Bayless the title of Top Chef Masters, I remain a fan. So when the opportunity to check out Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar at Macy’s in Union Square came up, I just had to go. It wasn’t hard to convince the rest of the pack since who can really say no to burgers? The menu had a whole array of burgers, one that piqued my fancy was a Burger to his name – supposedly his favorite, which had, Buffalo meat, caramelized onions, baby spinach, blue cheese on a ciabatta bun. But no, I ended up making my own burger from a whole list of ingredients that he made available on his Build Your Own Burger menu. I eventually chose a simpler version of his favorite. I had Angus beef with blue cheese on a ciabatta bun – a combination of favorites. Happy.Burger Bar San Francisco Macy’s Union Square 6th Floor San Francisco, CA (415) 296-4272
you are more in the loop with the san fran dining scene than i am. thanks for sharing this. i try to shy away from union square area, too crowded, but for a burger why not elbow out the tourists who crowd my pavement space right?
On our last visit to SF, we stayed within walking distance to the Moscone so yeah it was an opportunity that I took. If we weren’t staying in the area, I’d probably stay away as well. 🙂
