Nicole Pederson's Wood Oven Roasted Burger at Found

New, 1 comment

As part of Eater's 2013 burger week, chefs at a few Chicago restaurants that don't serve burgers agreed to make a special limited-edition burger, served this week. Here now is the Wood Oven Roasted Burger from Found.

The Found Wood Oven Roasted Burger

Found may be one of the hottest restaurants in the area and a posterchild for the hospitality boom in Evanston, but until Burger Week they didn't have a burger on the menu. The burger fits right in with their rustic yet inspired New American menu and is available throughout the week. It'll even be available after as a "secret burger"—if you ask for it.

Chef Nicole Pederson starts the burger with locally-raised beef and seasons it with their "Montreal-style steak seasoning." It's then pan-seared in a cast iron skillet before finding a home inside the wood burning oven. After the cooking is complete, Alpha's Morning Sun Wisconsin cheddar/gruyere cheese goes over top, followed by McClure's sliced pickle chips, chopped escarole, and a creamy French onion sauce as the coup de grace. It's then sandwiched between a house-made wheat roll.

Customers can "find" the burger on the menu now.
