Quick Hits: Must-Try Specials of National Burger Month in Miami

Starting May 1st, National Burger Month is taking the Magic City by storm with a 4-week-long marathon of specialty burgers hot off the grill at Miami’s restaurant hotspots. Here, we take a look at restaurants like Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak and The Dutch for burgers that are sure to satisfy the meat-lovers celebrating this foodie holiday.

Bourbon Steak

The “Haute Burger” at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak

Acclaimed Chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak restaurant at Turnberry Isle in Aventura is diving into National Burger month with a line-up of $21 burgers each week of the month that are sure to win over the hearts and stomachs of enthusiastic eaters. The menu will feature a different patty each week, but our personal favorite is the best saved for last, available in Week 4: the Haute Burger. With a delicious combination of foie gras aioli, black truffle, red wine and balsamic onions, the sandwich is every bit deserving of its name and worth every penny.

Power couple Shannon and Ray Allen, owners and operators of the East Coast’s first USDA Organic Certified restaurant, Grown, are bringing a savory alternative for the restaurant-goers that want to celebrate the month but prefer seafood over beef with their signature Salmon Burger. Served pan seared with fresh romaine lettuce, sliced Roma tomatoes, caramelized onions and Dijon aioli on a toasted Ezekiel bun, the sandwich is available Monday, May 1, 2017 to Sunday May 7, 2017, and proceeds will benefit the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF).
