Actually anytime is a good time to have a burger but as long as May has been proclaimed Burger month, well it's a delicious excuse for enjoying some juicy burgers in south Florida. ROK:BRGR is a gourmet burger bar and gastro-pub in Miami. They've been open at their new, popular-with-the-young-crowd location for only a few months. The place is fun and jumping with high decibels of music. The bar and dining area offers plenty of flat screen TV's that are tuned into a multitude of sports shows and there's a quieter terrace for the romantic foodies who would rather whisper sweet nothings to each other while tasting the yum-yums and enjoying the brews. Best of all they've got an affordable menu that aims to please.
Start out with a Thai steak salad which includes chunks of filet mignon, mixed greens, thin slices of mango, cherry tomatoes sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds, crispy wontons and topped with a Thai ginger dressing. Next, check out their burgers made with certified Angus beef, all-natural artisan cheeses and the freshest local ingredients. General Manager Rico Cruz said, "Besides the regular menu we have all sorts of specials. Wednesday is Wine Down from 5-close with every bottle of wine at 50% off. There's a great Happy Hour from Monday to Friday and on Sunday the chef prepares a special brunch menu with free Mimosas for the ladies accompanied by live music."
During the month of May expect a must-try Truffle Burger which is served with hand-cut truffle fries and a truffle port reduction for $50. OK, it's a little pricey however the ingredients are decadent and flavorful and really take this burger to a cloud-9 level. ROK:BRGR in Miami is located at 5800 SW 73rd St., Miami 33143.
