Benoit's Cheeseburger with Fries, Dish #93

Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Cheeseburger and Fries ($18)

Behold the bistro's cheeseburger: a fat, rare patty of chuck, cheeks, and ribs, topped with lettuce, tomato, and finely sliced red onion. The meat is slathered with a bit of sharp Bearnaise--an emulsified butter sauce, chunky with tarragon and shallots--and a side of the sauce will also arrive in a teeny saucepan. Fries are thin and crisp, presented in a napkin tucked inside a cake ring. Ouf, the whole thing is a bit over the top! But every now and then you should sit down somewhere pretty, order a glass of wine, and seriously enjoy a burger, right?
