House Burger at Truffles

The hamburger at Truffles in Ladue is delivered tableside on a cutting board rimmed with a reservoir that was designed for catching drippings of carved meat, or perhaps for foreshadowing just how much juice and fat this gourmet hamburger of prime beef throws off as it is eaten. The end result is a burger that you blissfully chomp away at in a rapid succession of bites, a manner that may seem a bit undignified for such a refined setting. That is until you look up and notice your server nodding in knowing agreement, assuring you that you are, indeed, doing it right.
