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. (more…)

Ed. Note: After our best burger talk last month I got word of a mythical burger quest by a group of friends and lo and behold here it is.

The gents write:

“Back in 2017 a group of 10 nerds, who also happened to be friends, decided to embark on an epic foodie quest to try the best burgers of DC. Our goal was simple: systematically and rigorously pinpoint the tastiest burger in and around the District. And we were serious. We even bought the domain to (and then never did anything with it).

Our starting point was a list of 8 restaurants based on the existing “Best of” lists and hearsay. Over the next two years, this group of 8 ballooned to a whopping 18 burger joints. We still haven’t gone everywhere we have wanted to, but hope to in the years to come.

So how did we approach this journey? Each time we picked a new place, we tried to maximize how many people could join. Usually we got 4-7 of us, but sometimes as low as 2, other times we had as many as 9 of us.

We didn’t have pre-defined criteria for the ratings, but there were some elements we often found ourselves discussing; bun composition and texture, structural integrity, meat taste and juiciness, and overall flavor were key pieces to our rating. We did not factor cost into the equation.

With some minor exceptions, we all ordered the same burger at each place. When we finished, we shared our ratings directly with a designated data collector in order to minimize bias and plopped the ratings into a Google sheet.

NOW, without further ado, our ratings. With each we tried to add a description. Below these are our superlatives. (more…)

You can see best Carryouts here, best Thai here, best liquor stores here, best Ramen here, best Bars here, best Indian and Pakistani here, best Italian/Pizza/Deli here and best Mexican/Salvadoran/Central/Cuban/Latin here.

And now no messing around. Down and dirty – where’s D.C.’s best burgers? And what the hell – best fries?

Park Place apartments at New Hampshire and Georgia Ave, NW technically 850 Quincy St, NW

No, I’ve never actually heard of Burgerim but this damn retail space has been vacant for so long – I’m marking this as a win!! Also, burgers!!

Michael Neibauer reported on twitter:

“Pending BZA special exception approval, D.C.’s first Burgerim franchise is planned for 850 Quincy St. NW, at the corner of Rock Creek Church Road and Georgia Ave.”

So I think this is the big space with the curve at New Hampshire and Georgia pictured above. Anyway Burgerim’s website says:

“Burgerim is an international fast casual franchise with a shiny new concept. (more…)
