No, not these ramps.
Last night it snowed. Today the wind howled and you had to wonder if this winter would ever just give up. But Twitter is abuzz with photos and tweets that proved spring is indeed here. Local chefs are tweeting up a storm of the ramps they’ve foraged and already gotten onto their menus.

So you guys know that chef Justin Swain at Rex 1516 does a different custom burger every week, right? He announces it on Tuesdays on Twitter, runs it as a special on Tuesday and Wednesday night, then moves onto something new for next week. He’s been doing it for some time now, but for whatever reason (possibly the bacon and queso) this week’s “In Queso Emergency” burger caught my eye and made me very, very hungry.
For those of you who are into it, it’ll be on the menu tonight in all it’s bacon-y and cheese-y glory. You can get it as part of the Citywide burger promo–meaning the burger, a pint of Newbold and a shot of Buffalo Trace bourbon can all be yours for just $15.

Every Tuesday, Rex 1516′s chef Justin Swain will reveal the restaurant’s weekly burger special. The burger, which is available on Tuesday and Wednesday evening at the South Street West restaurant is paired with a shot of Buffalo Trace and a pint of Philadelphia Brewing Company’s Newbold IPA for $15.
This week’s special is smoked sliced brisket, cherry pepper cheese sauce, bibb lettuce, atop Rex 1516′s house ground burger.
