Picnic party time!
Good food, fine times, and big burgers reigned supreme this week at the Hot Dish. Here are a few tidbits we wouldn't want you to miss:

Take a sneak peek at Gather by D'Amico, the new venue in the former 20.21 space.

That empty building always made us sad, so its rad that someone is finally revisiting the former home of Auriga.

Wondering what's new on the restaurant scene, coming soon, or dearly departed? Check out the Month in Review.

Celebrate Hamburger Month with a bevy of beautiful and unusual burgers.

We chat up Alex Chase of Masu Sushi & Robata and delve deep into his psyche in this three part series.

Rock on, gastronomers, and have a great weekend.
