Last night Justin and I went to a new restaurant/bar in Nashville that I had not been to before, and it was great! Stopped by The Melrose, which is described as “your neighborhood pub with great food and great drinks”. They have a typical bar menu and a wide variety of beers to choose from. They are knows for their quality burgers which are all hand formed beef patties from Hillview Farms, raised without hormones or antibiotics, served with locally baked buns.
We decided to split a pitcher of Brooklyn Lager (caramel, malt, floral hop aromas), order burgers and share a basket of their waffle fries. I ordered the Bleu Cheeseburger (bleu cheese, cooked bacon, grilled onions, tomatoes, lettuce and pickle) cooked medium. I always eat my burgers without the bread for a couple reasons…1) Any type of wheat makes me feel uber tired, sluggish, swollen and makes me feel like I could sleep for two days and 2) I would rather eat fries than the bread. It’s all about balance 😉
