THE SHORT ORDER RIP-OFF

Two nights ago I was very excited to finally try SHORT ORDER, the "avant garde" hamburger place at the Farmer's Market by Nancy Silverton. I was so excited that I completely forgot that my opinion of Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza was that they were very overrated.

Fried Dill Pickle Chips. Yum!

The beef- short-rib burger. Looks good--no taste

Turkey Burger--not a winner
Short Order is a terrific, funky/chic place with wonderful service. But paying almost $60.00 for two burgers (yes, there was one beer and one wine) is insane. One burger sounded amazing--a combo of short ribs, beef, and something else freshly ground, with fried onions and a sauce. The second burger was their recommended Turkey Burger with sauteed leeks and celery, mayo/mustard and sage derby cheese. The buns were homemade and were terrific. What was inside, in the case of BOTH burgers, was primarily tasteless and dry. It was shocking. The best thing on the menu was a side order of dill pickle chips. Short Order has seen the last of me. I'll just keep eating at Loteria inside, thank you.

Sue Cameron, I here you loud and clear. I will avoid if possible. You and your taste buds have served me well for years. Thank you
