Burgers- the Seattle Times Tan Vinh Reports on the City's Best (Tavern Law + Spur included)

Today's Ticket section's cover story is on where to get an amped-up burger here in town, including our two spots about which Vinh writes, "Chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough, of Tavern Law in Capitol Hill and Spur Gastropub in Belltown, make different variations at each bar.

I think Tavern Law's burger is the better of the two. Grass-fed beef, with red-wine onion jam, thyme aioli and gobs of provolone, topped with two sous vide pork belly.

Spur's version tastes a bit saltier, but still is impressive. Similar burger and pork belly but with stone-ground mustard aioli, caramelized onions and smoked cheddar. (Add truffles for an additional $10). A mound of shoestring fries comes with the order. Tavern Law serves the burger with a salad."

Thank you Seattle Times and Tan.
