Burgers are making the menu at fine-dining establishments

This cheesburger was served at the Alcove in Long Beach, which is no longer in business.

This week in this blog, I’m sharing some of my favorite images taken while on assignments.

Tough job that it is, I sure enjoy working in restaurants and talking to chefs and restaurateurs.

I have managed to collect quite a few images over the years, and I have a folder where I keep my favorites. All the images this week were taken from that well-worn folder.

If you are a friend of mine you know I have a great fondness, some might say weakness, for cheeseburgers.

Call me Wimpy, I don’t care, but a good cheeseburger is hard to beat. I had a great one at thirty-two not too long ago, the fine-dining restaurant at the IP Casino Resort & Spa, and I also had another great one at Soigne, another fine-dining restaurant that is making quite a stir in Ocean Springs.

Burgers aren’t just found at burger joints any more.

This is a picture I took at the Alcove in Long Beach, a great little spot that unfortunately closed.

This burger was loaded with cheese, pickles and bacon, but it also had crispy fried onion rings on it.

It was a great burger, and I was sad to see the restaurant go.

Any time you pile good ingredients on top of a cheeseburger so that it is not only hard to pick up, but also is even harder to eat, it is all the better, don’t you think?
