Company sponsored, Team-Project Lunch. What used to be the old Hawthorne Lane is now Two Restaurant. There were quite a few of us, I would guess about twenty? We were seated in the center of the restaurant in this hand carved wood table. Although a modern, interior upgrade, there was a lodgy, men's club kind of feel to the decor. To add, the menu seemed quite Italianesque - European.
I was excited to have the opportunity to sample the Two Restaurant burger. Although I've probably exhausted a lot of the burger survey options within the two-block radius from work, there are perhaps still a handful of burgers in more high-class restaurant establishments nearby which I haven't surveyed yet.
Verdict: The burger is definitely a one-course plate. Fortunately I ordered the Belgian Frites on the side. They ended up being the highlight of this meal for me. Although the burger came out served with a plastic stake authorizing/validating the intended/stated grilling preference, the burger was weird beyond belief. Again it seems like the chef has prepared a "meatloaf" burger with excessive seasoning and other infill ingredients. Again, this is not to my desired liking.
