Exchange District: Le Burger Week Guide 2022

September 1-14

Le Burger Week is back for another year, and is once again extending it to two weeks! Despite the announcement of a plant-based theme this round, Exchange District restaurants have rebelled to bring us a slew of meaty creations, including Johnny G’s outrageous double patty bacon burger which swaps a bun for its famous chicken fingers. Amsterdam Tea Room, Shawarma Khan, Supreme Macaroni Co and James Avenue Pumphouse are giving the best of both worlds by offering vegetarian or vegan versions upon request.

Amsterdam Tea Room

The Sincere Burger

The SINCERE BURGER is an honest, down to earth, burger which focuses on quality ingredients, sustainability and inclusivity. ¼ lb all beef brisket and chuck signature blend patty, pickles, slivered onions, 3-month aged cheddar, house made burger sauce, Gunn’s bun. Looking for a vegetarian option or looking to reduce your carbon footprint? Sub the beef patty for a plant-based patty for $2. The plant-based Sincere Burger can be made VEGAN on request.

The Picanha burger is a custom made 6oz ground top sirloin cap pattie topped with Monterrey Jack and cheddar cheeses, caramelized onions, a chimichurri corn relish, housemade pineapple bbq aioli, arugala and tomatoes all on a fresh made pineapple butter bun from Gunn’s bakery.
