Sign o' the Times: Bargain Burger at Epic Roasthouse

Posted By on Fri, Jan 16, 2009 at 11:45 AM

It was bound to happen: the highly touted multimillion-dollar Pat Kuleto-designed Epic Roasthouse , home of the $54 26-ounce porterhouse and the $46 20-ounce New York strip steak, is offering what it considers a bargain-priced lunch (or VERY early dinner) special, which they're calling the "3B," for Burger-Beer-Brownie, at $20.

The 3B is available on Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Quiver Bar, the Roasthouse's upstairs space, which is noisier and less posh than the downstairs but partakes of the same astonishing bay-and-bridge view.

The burger is its Ultimate 1/2 Pound Roasthouse Burger (ground fresh daily, and complete with Accoutrements, which include potato chips, anchovy ketchup, Creole mustard, garlic aioli, sauteed mushrooms, corn relish, and bacon bits, all house-made); the beer is a 12-ounce Bud (substitutable with an Anchor Steam or Trumer Pils draft, which sounds better to us, or a Thomas Kemper root beer); and the brownie is house-baked.

We have very happy memories of the Ultimate 3/4 Pound Burger we consumed at dinner downstairs one night. And since the regular price of the 1/2 Pound Burger is $20, we already can hear -- and smell! -- the siren call of the grill.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
