Food Nerd Heaven!

The tour is in New Haven, CT. For those of you who don’t know, New Haven is not only home to Yale, but to Louis’ Lunch. Louis’ Lunch has been in New Haven since 1895 and has not changed buildings. It is still in a small brick building on Chapel Street, near some of the bars. Not only is Louis’ Lunch a landmark because of age, it is a land mark because it is the birthplace of the hamburger. I don’t remember the entire story, but the result is almost what we eat today. The patties are cooked in their original grills that are like mini ovens. All of them are cooked to medium rare, unless asked for. They come on sliced white bread with tomato, onion, and optional cheese. That’s it. No frilles, nothing extra. But then again, the burger doesn’t need it. It was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had, and I’m not just saying that because it is the original. The meat was cooked perfectly, it was so juicy and it tasted like a steak. I’m just so glad I got to eat there. They’re not open Monday’s and Tuesdays, and last year they we’re open when we were in town because of Thanksgiving. I went there right after our first show in town. I dragged a bunch of people there, and everyone loved it. I may want to go again Tuesday before we leave on Wednesday. Don’t judge.
