Another Burger in the Field

The Heights several quaint renovated bungalows that have re-opened as unique culinary dining spots. Most include burgers on their menu. Field & Tides recently opened on E.11th street, and F&T Burger is really as much art as it is a meal. Presented atop a fluffy glistening challah bun. The 80/20 blend is juicy and flavorful, and accents of tender bacon belly, Bibb lettuce, tomato and onion blend together for a flavorsome burger experience. One of their standard toppings, is a tart IPA creole mustard. If you are a fan of mustard on your burger, you will enjoy this added condiment. Not being such a fan, I would opt to ask for it on the side for my next visit.

While the fries accompanying my burger were nothing special, there is much to enjoy about Field & Tides. The casual setting reminds me of a seaside cafe with cool hues of whites and calming blues. And more importantly, there is the attentive and friendly service.  Many other creative and tasty items on their menu, which I suggest trying. But, this is a burger blog, so let's stay focused.

Boss Burger

A recent Newport Beach addition to the Houston restaurant scene, Bosscat Kitchen & Libations, on Mid Lane near River Oaks District is one cool cat! With their cool exposed brick interior, large garage doors opening to an outdoor eating area, one of the best whiskey selections in town, this cool spot also highlights two hamburgers on their menu, including their namesake Bosscat Burger, pictured below.

The Bosscat Burger's ingredients blend together to make a delectable meal. In-house ground beef is complimented by bacon, cheese, black garlic sauce, lettuce and tomato on a cornmeal-dusted bun. The juices flowed with each bite, and while the bun might look dry, it is anything but!  The toasted middle and fluffy top offered the right combination of moistness and flavor. I ordered a very generous side-portion of Bosscat Fries - crunchy wedge fries with a tender center, made from their secret recipe, and accompanied by chow-chow catsup. And, to wash it all down, I enjoyed a shot of Elmer T. Lee bourbon. 

The service at Bosscat is attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed with that cool vibe. Their convenient location and ample parking in the garage, or valet, makes this a go-to destination on my burger list. I have enjoyed many visits, and suggest you do the same, and soon.
