— on the sixth floor of Macy's in Union Square. Other

There aren't too many places in San Francisco where you can get
the ultimate burger, great buzz... AND a fabulous view.
200-seat Burger Bar offers a variety of yummy burgers and shakes...
and a killer SF skyline view thru' large picture windows overlooking
It's also a fun venue for watching
sports — three flat-screen
TVs are located above the bar and little mini TV screens
are featured in individual booths inside the main dining area
(photo below). Burgers, fries, spiked
all under one roof!
Burger Bar is known for it's build-your-own-burger concept. Diners
can choose from American Kobe Beef (delicious),
Black Angus Beef, Country Natural Beef, Lamb, Turkey, Chicken,
burgers — plus
a huge variety of toppings.
Add your favorite sauce... and a
side of fries (Skinny Fries, Steak Fries, Sweet Potato
Fries, Buttermilk Zucchini Fries...) and you have the
burger of your dreams.
Burger Bar's thick crispy Onion Rings are
some of the best we've ever tasted — they really
complement the burgers!
A variety of burgers (served with skinny fries) and specialty
items can also be ordered off the menu, including the Hubert
Keller Buffalo Burger (topped with caramelized onions, blue cheese
and baby spinach; Black Jack Burger, Classic Bacon Cheeseburger; Surf & Turf
with Black Angus and Grilled Half Lobster; Grilled Vegetables;
Burger Bar Sliders (3 mini burgers), Low
Carb Burger, Fresh Salads...
The Ultimate Burger
For those of you who really want to splurge, celebrate
a special occasion... or can get away with putting it on your
expense account, treat yourself to the ultimate "$60
Rossini Burger" — featuring
Kobe Beef, sauteed foie gras, shaved truffles and Madeira sauce
an onion bun.
And the $60 question is... "Is it worth the price?" — we'd
like to know :)
