No. 81: Angus and Brie Burger From Gilbert's 17th Street Grill

The first thing you notice is the onion strips, a golden-fried nest of

them cascading off the top of the burger. Below that, a wedge of Brie,

creamy white and slightly runny, crowning an inch-thick patty. The

char-grilled, all Angus burger is itself cooked medium, but still

gushes enough blood to stain the bottom half of the bun red. It looks

impressive, and that's before you even taste it. At Gilbert's 17th Street Grill, a sunny, family-run restaurant in the Harbor Shops of Fort Lauderdale, the half-pound, all-Angus burgers have won some fair bit of acclaim. And that acclaim is well worth it. Juicy, beefy, thick, and well-charred, these are some serious sandwiches, each served with a variety of toppings and a horde of hand-cut French fries.
