Highlights from local menus


SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY The Dish: The Hot Mess

The place: Burger Bar, Donald Ross Village, 4560 Donald Ross Road, Suite 100, Palm Beach Gardens; 630-4545 or www.burgerbar.com

The price: $16.50

The details: Burger Bar calls this sandwich the Hot Mess, and it doesn’t require much description on my part to see why.

The 8-ounce burger is topped with grated cheddar and a slice of Swiss cheese, jalapeños, two slices of bacon and a slightly spicy basting sauce that makes it sit up and sing.

At first glance, we thought the sandwich was sitting atop hashed browns. It was then that we learned it actually was the grated cheddar cheese, grilled until crispy.

The burger itself, once you got to it, was juicy and cooked medium to order. The challah bun also was perfectly toasted.

But that cheese? It all was really too much, and much of it remained on the tray.

Still, it was a tasty sandwich that lived up to its name. ¦
