The next fifth burger

New at four burgers the fifth burger is Bison order now online. Idaho fries are always preferred over sweet, which can get soggy. You can choose a cheese from the menu but really there's just one, cheddar.

The worst best cheese sandwich in Davis Square

Since the Davis Square cheese sandwich quest became a semi-regular feature back in May, I've been aware of Deli-icious but for whatever reason never checked out their cheese sandwich.  Until this week. Yelpsters seem generally bullish on the place, and Chowhound offers an interesting bit of navistalgia around the former occupant of the space and…

Davis Square cheese sandwich quest: The Ploughman's Lunch

The cheese sandwich quest continues.  Following up on a tip from Brian, I ordered up the Ploughman's Lunch at The Burren here in Davis.  It came with excellent chips (fries) but the cheese was less than it might have been.  Apologies for the sub-par cameraphone shot, I was caught out without my Ricoh. The menu…

Davis square cheese sandwich quandary: twice the space, half the cheese

Blue Shirt Cafe recently expanded Eastward into the space between them and Snappy Sushi, probably doubling their total square footage while increasing the dining seating perhaps fivefold. But there's still not that much cheese in their cheese sandwiches. I had the Little Italy, with tomatoes, roasted red peppers, pesto, provolone and balsamic on focaccia. I…

Davis square cheese sandwich smackdown keeps smacking

The great Davis Square Cheese Sandwich battle got a little more interesting this week as second-place finisher Blue Shirt Cafe struck back at weakened champion Diesel Cafe.  Diesel had won handily with the Branch Trio, but then took it off their menu, retiring undefeated as it were.  But if you were persistent and lucky, you…

Red sauce season

What the Fluff? was postponed due to rain, so naturally we headed off to East Boston to a red sauce joint we'd never visited before, Rino's place.  Wouldn't you?  The party was joined by several members of the Josephine crew, Chef J (whose issues with red sauce are well documented), professor J and probably somebody…

Cheesed off in Davis Square

Right on the heels of the terrible cheese/chocolate choice, I find that somebody has made an important cheese choice for me. I went to Diesel Cafe for lunch as I often do and ordered the Branch Trio as I often do - in fact, it was the winner of the Davis Square cheese-off back in…

Choices

Earlier this week I was in Santa Monica engaging in the dark art of qualitative marketing research. (For more insight into marketing research, try Lynne's shiny new blog, Marketing Analytics) While dining with my colleagues, I discovered that they had been having on ongoing discussion on foodie topics, and were eager to draw me into…

Pluot Pie at Chez Panisse

It was Professor N's birthday on the auspicious 8/8/08 but we were able to score a late reservation at Chez Panisse a the day before joined by his buddy P. We ventured out to Berkeley to Alice Waters shrine to gourmet locavoriousness. We were greeted by the trademark Victorian arts & crafts vaguely Frank Lloyd…

Savory scone update

Not too long ago, I was craving a good savory scone, and when I couldn't find any in local shops, a good friend went ahead and made some, which were most excellent. Yesterday, I was at the Wine & Cheese Cask, possibly Somerville's best wine shop, looking for some crisp whites the fried chicken wine…

Locavore Sandwich II: cheating on flying pigs with smokey goats

Lots of half-finished business (but hardly any half-finished food) here in the secret LimeCave. After last week's cheesy post on local eating, I learned a couple of important things: It's locavore (219,000 google results), not locovore (4,000 results) Via GrowCookEat, I found a list of Massachusetts farm markets, including one in Davis square So naturally,…
