No doubt there are a lot of burger joints near our luxury apartments in Durham, NC. So what makes Burger Bach so special?
ALL GREEN, NO GRAIN
First off, it's true. Burger Bach offers only 100% grass-fed, free-range beef and lamb, imported from New Zealand, on its menu. The chicken is from organic, cage-free ranches in the Shenandoah Valley. It's a commitment Burger Bach takes seriously.
WHAT’S WITH THE NAME?
The burger part is easy, Burger Bach offers burgers of beef, lamb, and chicken, as well as appetizers including oysters, shrimp, guacamole, and nachos. The sautéed steamed Prince Edward Island mussels and wild caught jumbo Argentinian Royal Red shrimp, well, we'll just use the expression, "are to die for!"
In New Zealand, the term "Bach" refers to a holiday home, a place where friends and family may choose to take a vacation. It is thought to have originated as a shortened term for a bachelor pad.
Burger Bach objects to be being called a burger joint, as it is so much more. It is a gastronomic public house, or Gastro Pub for short, welcoming visitors to stay a while, enjoying food and conversation.
AWARDS AND ACCOLADES
The Durham location is the first in North Carolina, with other locations in Richmond, Glen Allen, Charlottesville, and Midlothian, Virginia.
