Like everyone, we were saddened to see Vincent a Restaurant, the fine French dining room on Nicollet Mall, go away after 14 years. But the thing that really made us howl was the demise of the famous Vincent Burger, the fine-dining burger that was around since before the fine-dining burger was even a thing.
Here’s how Vincent did it: ground beef blended with short rib then stuffed with smoked Gouda, finished with “gherkin sauce” and LTO on an egg bun.
These days, the chef is making his living as the culinary director for Cara Irish Pubs, so get ready for better food at Kieran’s, Cooper, and the Liffey, but also the Local, where the burger will now be available on Mondays.
Vincent will even be in the kitchen to ensure that his eponymous dish is done the right way.
