No secret here: The key to a good burger lies in the meat. It’s no surprise, then, that Terrapin’s premium patties are such a hit. To make the burgers, chef-owner Josh Kroner uses hormone-free, antibiotic-free, grain- and grass-fed beef. That all-natural flavor is further enhanced by the 30-plus toppings the restaurant offers, which include smoked Gouda, sautéed portobellos, and yogurt-mint-cucumber raita. CNN thought so much of Kroner’s creation that it filmed a segment on the burgers earlier this year. That’s news you can use — and chew.
