Craig LaBan visits the Good Dog Bar and Restaurant at 224 S 15th Street and finds one of Philadelphia’s most inventive gastro-pubs and its best burger.
Nothing, though, quite moved me like the Good Dog’s burgers, a perfectly juicy balance of primal pleasure and clever cookery that spurred my dinner guest to write a haiku about it the next day. Coincidentally, I had already begun mine. In particular, about the startling moment I took a bite of GD’s signature burger topped with caramelized onions and discovered that its perfectly seasoned, lithely handled meat had been miraculously stuffed with a wellspring of molten bleu cheese.
Two Bells – Very Good
