Order of the Week
Our regular JD of The Red Carpet Report came in when we were running the Walker Texas Ranger and went postal on Chuck’s @#$. In addition to the Half-Pound Niman Ranch Beef Patty, Melted Cheddar, Candied Bacon, Fried Onions, and BBQ Sauce, JD decided that it would be better if we added EVEN MORE regular Bacon, Caramelized Onions, and a Fried Egg. Oh, and make that TWO. Of course. Walker Texas DANGER, yo.
Karim’s Meathammer has been dethroned, but we understand he’s spoiling for a rematch. Stay tuned.
(BTW, JD got down on his knees for this – he’s like 6′ 5″ – just not enough room for him and two ridiculous burgers.)
Karim makes gluten intolerance look wicked pissah. In fact, he gives it a solid beat-down with his self-named creation, the MEAT HAMMER. Breakfast salad, no croutons, 1/2 pound beef patty, and Earl’s sauce. Oh, yeah, that’s an egg under all that bacon. Look at him. We should all be this happy.
Tom begged not to have his picture associated with this, which is almost unacceptable, but his concoction was so extreme (and he’s a great regular) that we’ll make an exception on his behalf. Who are we to blow someone’s cover? Anyhow, here’s the Tomburger (note that this is a ‘work in progress’: more or less a Mushrooben (sauerkraut, marinated portobello mushrooms, thousand island dressing, gruyere), with the addition of half a pound of Niman Ranch beef patty and bacon on a brioche bun. What can you say about that. Plus, Tom howled when he ordered, so that’s extra points, too.
Mike from LA Brakeless came in for a light lunch. Turkey Burger special? Naw, too heavy… How about a Croque Madame with Bacon? Yup, sounds ’bout right. Points for non ironic eating.
The Order of the Week has so far been a man’s man’s man’s world of dude-wiches. Well, that’s all about to change. Meet the new skipper, Andrea Aria-Devoe of Beso.com. Working lunch, Blue Crab Salad, and a really nice coat. Brings a boatload of style to dining at Earl’s. Classy new standard.
John Hamilton of Hamilton Architects puts his spin on the BBLT special – Bacon, Romaine, Tomato, and FRIED EGG on MARBLED RYE. Yes, an architect who can’t leave a simple sandwich alone, shocker. But, truly, look at that thing. This is the kind of behavior that gets you on the Order of the Week. Plus, he named it the Tyler Durden. “God Damn! We just had a near-life experience, fellas.”
