Village Whiskey has been creating special burgers of the month for a bit now and we’ve been meaning to check them out. So today Team Foobooz headed in to try October’s burger, the “Abe Froman’s Wursthaus Burger.” An ode to Ferris Buehler’s Day Off and Jose Garces’s once upon a time idea of opening a restaurant named Abe Froman’s, the burger is topped with grilled kielbasa, lager braised sauerkraut, muenster cheese and dijon-truffle aioli.
It was a tasty burger but the $22 price (the Whiskey King is $26, the regular burger is $13) makes it difficult to recommend unless you have an expense account.
The news came down today: Atlantic City’s Revel Resort is shutting down next month.
Oh, sure. They’re still trying to sell the place. But they’ve been trying to sell it pretty much since the day it opened. Or at least since the first bankruptcy filing, which happened just a little over a year after it opened. As things stand now, the resort has never made a dime in profit, and the current owners are admitting that even if a buyer is found, Revel will still close before anyone can come in to save the day.
For the month of July, Iron Chef Jose Garces’ restaurant, Village Whiskey is heating things up with a mouthwatering burger, and you can thank San Fermín’s Running of the Bulls for it.
To celebrate the event, Village Whiskey will debut the Angry Bull Burger featuring aged manchego cheese, chorizo billbao, fried padron pepper, tempranillo grilled onions and smoked paprika aioli. The burger will cost $22 and that’s no bull.
