Ed. Note: Gonna have to revisit our best burger list sooner than I thought.

From a press release:

“Meet “Lucy’s,” a bar and burger spot aiming to do a few simple things really well. Lucy’s is located above Little Coco’s in the space formerly hosting Coco Beach and Hot Coco popup bars. They will return in summer and winter within Lucy’s, which is conceived as a permanent bar & grill.

We love burgers. Over the years, we’ve created a wide range of burgers–from decadent old school ones to new school ones with crazy toppings, even a $40 Kobe beef one. We’ve curated extensive beer and cocktail lists. At Lucy’s, we’re going back to basics, offering a small menu of great burgers and fries, accompanied by an unfussy bar with beer, pops and a few delicious cocktails.

The beef is a tasty blend of short rib, brisket and chuck served on a potato bun from local bakery Lyon. We top it with minced white (raw) onion and dijon aioli (somewhat stolen from Little Tavern). In an effort to strip the burger to its simple best, we sampled a bunch of beef blends and grinds and lots of toppings. We think the end result is just about perfect. Add to it a side of housemade crispy fries, and you’ve got a superb little meal.

Hamburger with dijon aioli & minced white onion $6.49
Cheeseburger with white american cheese, pickles, saucy sauce, minced onion $6.99 Deluxe with bacon, cherry peppers & everything cheeseburger $7.99
Royale with torchon of foie gras & truffle aioli $15.99
Hot ‘n Crispy Fries $2.49

We feel these are burgers that focus on the important things…the beef and the bun. And drinks that we want to drink when we get off work that don’t break the bank. It’s the little things that make the simple stuff great.
Named after Jackie’s beloved dog Lucy (may she rest in peace). She was a good dog.”
