Bar 145 is named for the internal temperature of each of its burger patties, which are cooked to medium-rare perfection—a warm, pink interior, slightly crispy exterior. When the patty's done, the burger-making process has only just begun. Next, the team enhances the meat with a choice of 10 artisanal cheeses and more than 20 toppings, from peach-habanero chutney to roasted duck.
Gourmet burgers are just one of
the gastropub's specialties. Another is bourbon, a focus reflected in a drink menu stocked with more than 25 takes on the liquor. The third is live music from a rotating array of live bands, who entertain patrons with guitar riffs and danceable hits.
