BRGRBELLY Restaurant Review

: Atypical burgers take the stage at BRGRBELLY, a venture from former school teacher Nicole Masse O'Brien and her husband Steve O'Brien (Carlos'). The meat is house-ground and the buns are house-made. Add that to the fact that options --- like the House of the Rising Sun burger, topped with a fried egg, cheddar, smoked bacon and Bloody Mary sauce --- sound plenty appealing. For dessert, you'll find butter cookies topped with crushed pecans. There is a short wine list, along with local craft beers on draft.
