burger at Middlesex Lounge

tweetie Jun 27, 2009 11:14 AM

According to the Boston Globe, it's the number 2 East coast style burger in town. We're working our way through the list and looking for more comments. Five guys (West coast style) is also a possibility tonight. What do you think?

    Here's a link to the article.

      The Middlesex burger is pretty much the exact same burger they serve next door at MOS or over at Audubon. It is one of the better burgers in town for sure.

        Is that true? Didn't that article rate the Middlesex' burger higher MOS? Strange if they are the same thing (although I love MOS's burger, and as fascinating as Cragie's $18 heat-attack-inducer is, actually I prefer MOS's blue cheese better).

        Oh, and when I checked their website a few weeks ago, Middlesex only served the burger for lunch, not dinner (not that it's a dinner place).

          In the vast majority of cases I don't put much stock in anything I read in the Globe food section.

          From what I remember the one time I had the Middlesex burger, it is a different bun and fixings, but the same burger. FWIW I prefer the bun and atmosphere at both MOS (next door) and Audubon to Middlesex. All three places have the same owners.

            Yeah, but that's written my J. Kenji Alt, who is certainly one of Boston's foremost burger experts and posts here occasionally.

            I've been meaning to stop my and try one based on his rec, although if it's lunch-only I don't know when that's gonna happen.
