I've done many posts about my love of a good burger - most recently this one. There is something I just can't resist about the combo of a good bun and perfect beef patty with yummy toppings.
When I saw a few months back that Zinburger, a lively new concept centering on burgers combined with wine selections, would open at the Promenade Shops at Clifton I couldn't wait to try it out. Happy to report - it DID NOT dissapoint.
I ordered my "Zinburger" as listed on the menu with manchego cheese, Zinfandel braised onions (UH, YUM!!!), and mayo (gluttonous, but you need that fat to transport flavor). It came out as ordered, medium rare, and oh yeah, extra delicious. This ground-in-restaurant and never frozen beef proved to be really really tasty and those onions made my burger taste like pot roast (which is never a bad thing in my book)!
Side selections priced from $5 to $6 include generous portions of hand cut fries, double truffle fries, sweet potato fries (with yogurt dipping sauce) and zucchini fries. For those wanting a healthy side, there are plenty of hearty salad selections on the menu too.
Michael ordered their special house drink, the “Baco-tini”. He's a fan of this Bacon infused Vodka Martini with just a spray of Dry Vermouth that is topped off with a crispy bacon slice. According to him it comes highly recommended, as does the Ahi Sandwich with Coleslaw, Avocado and Tamari Soy Glaze.
