While the diner burger represents a quick, casual weekend getaway for your mouth, the steakhouse burger is like one of those blow-out, once-a-year moves: fancier, bigger, and more at home in a music video featuring lots of Champagne sprayed on rented sports cars. The most important part to getting these ornate burgers right is the beef. Get the best quality you can buy (i.e. butcher shop, not supermarket) and grind it fresh. This will create the flavorful, juicy burgers steakhouses are known for. And since it’s your party: feel free to go crazy with the toppings, or just keep it simple and let the meat shine.
