Counter Culture

Finding new, delicious places to eat is an easy thing to do around here, fabulous restaurants are everywhere. Occasionally I find a place that is so perfect and so amazing that Dane falls in love with it and wants to go there all the time. His latest obsession is The Counter.

It's all about gourmet, fully customized burgers. They have a menu with about a million different options (they boast 312,120+ burger combinations) and you have to make some tough choices. Gruyere or Goat Cheese? Roasted Garlic Aioli or Ginger Soy Glaze? After you agonize over your selections you fill out the menu (Dane thought the menu was like the STAR test, he very carefully bubbled in his choices) and then you enjoy some killer french fries while they put together your masterpiece. Dane has come up with some interesting creations, (grilled chicken with BBQ sauce and hard boiled eggs?) but anything goes at The Counter.
