As infants, gazing at another tea of curled up beefburgers that had made their sad journey from freezer to grill to plate, we could only dream of a bright dayglo future of delicious hand-made gourmet burgers. Maybe in a soft seeded bun with crispy fries.
That future is now, and it’s happening at Mediterraneo in the Merchant City, a buzzing Italian bar and grill that is the venue for today’s Big Deal. Exorcise the ghosts of a thousand disappointing burgers and enjoy a taste of the real thing.
Mediterraneo is a bright, contemporary Italian grill and champagne bar in the Merchant City. It’s a stylish and relaxed place to grab a bite in a vibrant atmosphere.
Available Sunday to Thursday from noon until 9pm, today’s Big Deal offers Italian gourmet burgers for two, chosen from the New Burger Feast menu.
Mediterraneo’s New Burger Feast menu offers beef, chicken and veggie burgers alongside a voguish pulled pork number. At the risk of sounding like an M&S ad, these are not just any burgers, these are lovingly-crafted gourmet creations.
Texas Inferno – An 8 oz chargrilled prime Scotch beef burger topped with a slice of Cheddar cheese, spicy salami & jalapeños with red onion, served in a soft seeded bun with crispy fries
Cordon Bleu – Chicken breast marinated in garlic & herbs then chargrilled, topped with cooked ham, a slice of Cheddar cheese, red onion and crispy lettuce served in a soft seeded bun with crispy fries
Veggie Mania – Veggie burger made with chick peas, beans, red onions, potato, broccoli & fresh herbs then seasoned to taste. Pan-fried, topped with a slice of Cheddar cheese, red onion and freshly sliced tomatoes served in a soft seeded bun with crispy house fries
