Revelry is defined in the dictionary as "boisterous festivity". A recent lunch at Revelry on Richmond included quite the festive meal. This new Museum Area sports and craft beer bar has an impressive hamburger selection. Due to their many options, I had decided to start with the burger at the top of their menu, and work my way down on subsequent visits. My first choice was "The Regular", and I proclaim that this is no "regular" burger.
Perusing their menu had me salavating. Burgers with housemade pickles and picked onions?!!! #yum! "The Regular" was a freshly ground 7oz beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, housemade pickles, pickled red onions and Siracha Mayo on a freshly baked crunchy artisan bun. That creative burger resembled a fine work of art. The purplish pickled red onions stared at me as if to say "I dare you to resist". Well, of course I didn't, promptly cutting that burger in half and taking my first bite. The flavor burst was quite amazing - the meat perfectly cooked to medium with that blackened charred crust. The cheddar cheese melted into the patty with a nice gooey texture, but the punch came from the picked pair on the burger. The Siracha Mayo added a nice kick. The crunchy bun, evenly grilled, had a delectable chewy center. I don't think I paused between bites, thoroughly enjoying every last one. Revelry offers a good assortment of creative fries, my favorite being the Parmesean Truffle selection. My "Burger Buddies' agreed - we had gone to burger heaven and would return often.
