, the homegrown burger chain well-known for occasionally giving away hundreds of burgers at a time
, is taking whatever lingering connection artisanal hamburgers have to McDonald’s and setting it aflame. Next week, from Monday, Aug. 17 to Friday, Aug. 21, the Kearny Street location will feature one local star chef per day
, offering a burger of his own creation, as part of Eat Drink SF.
Like most things of this nature, it’s for a charitable cause. Every day from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m., the guest chef’s burger will be available, with some of the proceeds going to a charity of that chef’s own choosing. After the lunch rush, from 2-3 p.m., those chefs will appear personally and 100 percent of all proceeds will go to that charity. Want a selfie with the superstar of Ne Timeas Restaurant Group? Don’t calendar a mid-afternoon meeting Monday.
