If you find yourself wandering Back Bay absolutely famished, 5 Napkin Burger offers you hunger antidotes in the form of thick, juicy, and satisfying burgers made with 100% Aspen Ridge chuck and served on house potato bread. The Original 5 Napkin Burger is topped with gooey Gruyere, rosemary-garlic aioli, and slightly sweet caramelized onions to balance out all that savory. If you’re feeling extra decadent (you’ve come to the right place), the Truffle burger is a no-brainer, with its house-made porcini ketchup, fired egg, and black-and-white truffle butter. As a prelude to your beefy entrée, opt for avocado hummus with crispy peas and pomegranate or tuna poke nachos with marinated tuna, avocado, chips, and wasabi cream.
