21. Designer Hamburgers Lend Luxury to Once-Humble Patty
- Monday, July 26, 2010
As an icon of American culture, the hamburger is infinitely variable. Though enduring as many costume changes as Madonna and Lady Gaga combined, the burger is essentially a statement of utter simplicity: a grilled or fried or broiled patty of ground beef served between two pieces of bread. The additions or condiments depend as much on regional tradition as personal taste. The lettuce-tomato-mayonnaise camp mans the barricades against the ketchup-mustard-pickle contingent, and never the twain shall agree.

The owners of the one-room coffee bar and café across the street from Memphis City Hall have heard that mayor Willie Herenton is a fan of their fresh-baked muffins.
