A crew of burger-lovers from Seattle Metropolitan magazine hit the streets in search of “The 13 yummy, juicy, downright awesome burgers that will change your life–or at least induce a moment of culinary ecstasy.” Somehow, the magazine’s cover story managed to leave off my beloved burger joint, that saucy skillet-meister Scotty Simpson’s Lunchbox Laboratory. Perhaps they’ve been hearing rumors of movement afoot there, and coupled with the chef’s history of opening and closing great restaurants, feared the place wouldn’t be around before the magazine went to press (more on that as it unfolds).
Lunch at the lab. For scientific purposes only, make mine a single.
To the Met’s credit, they agreed with me on Red Mill and Two Bells — profiled in my burger roundup last year. And no doubt more than a few of you will agree with them re: Burgermaster (their drive-in choice) vs. Dick’s (mine, those flabby fries notwithstanding).
Whether you’re grinding and grilling them at home or eating them out-and-about — perhaps you’d like to play patty-cake and weigh in once again, so to speak, on your #1 spot for a “yummy, juicy, downright awesome burger.”
