Picture it: a tender, juicy ground beef burger patty covered in a blanket of perfectly melted cheese and topped with crunchy lettuce, ripe tomatoes, and tangy mustard... on French bread. Rotier's Restaurant is serving up nothing short of a damn good, classic cheeseburger on a "bun" that is nothing short of shocking, but it works. As a burger purist, I understand your initial shock, but people have been flocking to the Elliston Place diner since 1945 for said burger, which should be proof enough. It's a Southern-style diner with chicken gizzards, fried pickles, and one of the most iconic burgers in all of Vandy-land.
