The Counter, on Washington Avenue in the Heights, has a handful of tables by the window that stretches the length of the restaurant, and, obviously, a large bar-like counter in the center. The beer, wine and milkshake menus are extensive, and there are a handful of sandwich and salad options. The focus here, however, is on the “build your own burger” concept. The menu provides spaces for patrons to check off whatever they would like in their burger, starting with their choice of patty: beef, chicken, turkey, bison, vegetarian or fresh ahi tuna steaks. Next, customers can choose from a dozen topping to put on their creation, and have it all piled on one of the eight types of buns, including a gluten-free option. There are more than 20 kinds of sauces, from roasted garlic aioli to traditional steak sauce to finish it all off.
