Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Witness meat’s metamorphosis with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of burgers, shakes, and more at Luxe Burger Bar in Providence.
Luxe Burger Bar dishes out extra-thick milkshakes, inventive grilled-cheese sandwiches, and customizable burgers made with all-natural, USDA-certified beef. Stack coleslaw and veggies atop a foundation of grilled-to-order beef ($7.99), ahi tuna ($10.99), or four other types of protein. Fried sharp-provolone or aged-cheddar blanket meat before the chef tucks in the burger with Bruce Springsteen’s oral history of spice rubs from VH1's Storytellers. Give burgers zing with complimentary sauces, such as tzatziki and garlic aioli, or jazz up sweet-potato fries (an extra $0.69 with build-your-own burgers) with chili and sour cream ($0.59 each). Diners can also slather specialty sandwiches like a D'Luxe grilled cheese, with aged cheddar, havarti, swiss, and a hint of arugula ($7.99). The Frankenstein—four beef patties, four strips of bacon, four slices of american cheese, and two jumbo hot-dogs slathered in chili, relish, and slaw ($19.99)—tempts the bravest eaters with a free T-shirt if they can scarf down the entire monster after it spends a day learning table manners.
Diners can explore an array of desserts—from pint-size chocolate mousse ($1.99) to cheesecake with mango sauce ($4.99)—and can break-in crazy straws by sipping drinks, such as a chocolate-marshmallow milkshake ($3.50), then use the straws as telescopes.
