I’ve been anxiously awaiting the new Burger Up on 12 South for months. As my trip to China drew near, they were getting closer and closer to opening the doors. My hope was that they would open before I left so I wouldn’t miss out on the grand opening…I hate when I miss out on these things you know!
But the day came for me to board my flight and sadly, no Burger Up yet. Fast forward 2 weeks when I arrive back in Nashville after eating loads and loads of Chinese food. With an intense burger craving, I plotted where to go to get my fix. Lo and behold, what do you know? I hadn’t, in fact, missed out on the opening of our new burger joint. Instead I was just in time, as the doors were opening that very weekend!
I’d previously gotten a sneak peek at the menu from Chef Chris Hyler, and was so excited to try so many things, but that night it was all about the burger. And it did not disappoint.
Some of the other tempting items on the preview* menu and on my list of things to try very, very soon:
Roasted beet, local goat cheese, and red onion over mixed field greens with white truffle aged sherry vinaigrette
Po Boy- choice of fried shrimp, crab cake, trout, or oyster, blue cheese house slaw, fresh local tomaotes, spicy lemon lime remoulade
Fried house pickles with buttermilk ranch
Quinoa and black bean burger with cilantro lime creme fraiche
In fact, I might just make my way over there next Monday night to sample a couple of these since they are participating in Eat Out for Nashville!
