BGR Winter menu preview

BGR Sugar House - Western BBQ burger

Love burgers? Love beer? I guess I should really ask, have a pulse? If you can answer yes to those three, check out the next event at Sugar House’s Burgers Grilled Right on November 13th (6-7.30 p.m.)

The evening will showcase a trio of new Winter menu options (plated as smaller sliders for the evening). New releases include:

  • Wagyu Wellington – a custom blend wagyu burger, infused with truffle, topped with wellington black truffle sauce, bleu cheese, and mojo sauce
  • Southwestern Bison Chipotle – a zesty custom blend bison chipotle infused burger, topped with pepper jack cheese and served over a black bean and corn salsa with homemade mojo sauce on a buttery brioche bun
  • The Greek Harissa Lamb – a spicy custom blend lamb harissa infused burger with Feta, cucumber, raw red onions, organic spring mix, ruby red beefsteak tomato and tzatziki

The trio will be paired with Shades craft beers: Aphrodite, Hazy IPA and Kveik Raspberry respectively. Diners will also be able to sample BGR’s sweet potato waffle fries, truffle fries and grilled asparagus too.

Tickets for the whole shebang are prized crazily cheap at just $30 in advance ($35 on the door). Three sliders, three beers and three sides all for $30, can’t say fairer than that. I’ll be there too should you want to berate me for any of my previous ramblings on Gastronomic SLC!

The event is 21+ only and ID’s are required to attend. Oh, all attendees will be entered to win a $50 gift card to BGR Sugar House as well. Buy tickets here.

Midway Mercantile

Lastly, another Winter warmer, this time over in Midway. November 13th is the date for a very special wine pairing dinner feature the cuisine of chef John Platt and both Silver Oak and Twomery Wineries. Here’s the info on the event direct from the restaurant:

We are truly blessed to be feeling the chill of winter rather than facing the blazes that ravage California. And while our hearts go out to everyone in California, we are especially relieved to know that Silver Oak and Twomey Wineries are not only safe, they will be joining us here in Utah for a Wine Dinner on Wednesday, November 13th at 6 pm. Sandra and I enjoyed an all-too-brief visit to the Sonoma locations of Silver Oak and Twomey a month ago, which only whet our appetites for this extraordinary opportunity to sample their wines and enjoy some Napa-fare created by yours truly, Chef John Platt.

Care to join us? If so, please email Sandra at sandra@midwaymercantile.comasap. We are planning a large group to take over the front half of the restaurant. It will be intimate nonetheless, with the Silver Oak Western Regional Rep Lindsay Hayes and our great Local Wine Rep Jimmy Kofoed, guiding us through these amazing wines. We will indeed be tasting both the Napa and Alexander Valley Silver Oak Cabs, we will enjoy the Twomey Sauv Blanc, the Twomey Merlot, and the Twomey Bien Nacido Pinot Noir. An incredible line up. The price for this top-tier wine dinner is $95 per person. We hope you can join us.
