There is plenty for the purist to be suspicious about at Burger and Barrel. The swanky space, long menu, recent $45 white truffle burger special (honestly) and the practice of cutting the burger in two prior to serving all give cause for concern. But the basic burger ($14) deserves praise. Coarsely ground and confidently griddled, it exudes tasty succulence. A soft, squidgy bun with just a hint of sourness complements the patty well. Wine is available on tap (hence the “Barrel”) and Chef Josh Capon has impeccable pedigree.
