Now that Primehouse renovations are finishing up, it's time for David Burke to focus on his next projects. Next on the docket is Burke's Bacon Bar, the mini-sandwich spot alongside Primehouse. Construction is ongoing in the cozy space, which will feature a walkup window, a standing counter running the full length, and delivery. There will be no seats.
The menu is being whittled down to a selection of eight bacon-centric sandwiches and a couple desserts. In between sliders and full sandwiches, Burke says he has coined the phrase "handwiches" to describe them. He expects three of them to fill patrons up; they'll cost $3-4 each. He mentions an updated lobster roll, a Peking duck sandwich, a Spam sandwich, and a Mexican BLT on tortilla with spicy Mexican bacon. The walkup window will serve "inventive flavors" of frozen yogurt and soft serve.
When it's finished, brace yourself for a lot of bacon. "Bacon everything" will be available for retail, such as bacon band-aids, I love bacon T-shirts, and the like. Burke was at Baconfest scouting.
Burke describes the decor as "old-school butcher shop meets farmhouse." Expect all types of hanging meats and salts, pig slogans littering the walls, and a "backlit salt backdrop."
