to end our meal, we both decided to try one of the milkshakes from the bar. this was a good move as both were appropriately boozy and quite delicious.
with the arrival of niche and the opening of pastaria along with what mike randolph has going on at half and half and little country gentleman, clayton has a new found wealth of great restaurants, and five star burgers sweetens the pot even more. what i like about the burgers here is that they are not gimmicky or challenging just for the sake of being different. chef gontram serves a well prepared product made from quality ingredients and the end result is evident of this. although i do still prefer the burgers at both home wine kitchen and five bistro, it is worth noting that five star's burgers all ring in at less than ten dollars, something that cannot be said for the aforementioned competitors. gontram has a good thing going with five star, and i can certainly see a return trip or two in our future.
