Gourmet burgers arrive in Halifax (finally!)

New Brunswick-based Relish Gourmet Burgers coming to Quinpool

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 4:34 PM

The trend toward gourmet, high-end burgers has been burning hot in places such as Toronto for the past few years, and we've been waiting for that trend to migrate east. We're happy to report it's happening in 2012, according to the website of Relish Gourmet Burgers. In the summer we'll see a franchise from the Frederiction-based eatery showing up here, at a former location of Blockbuster Video (6024 Quinpool Road).

The franchisee is planning renovations before the opening, including waiting for natural gas to be installed in May, according to a report on allNovaScotia.

The gourmet burger experience generally involves a juicy, thick burger (both beef and vegetarian varieties) slathered with exotic, tasty toppings, including crispy onion frites, pepper jack cheese, pickled peppers, pancetta bacon, brie cheese, caramelized onions, grainy dijion mustard, sliced avocado, roasted peppers, basil pesto, kalamata olives and tzatziki sauce. Prices vary, but expect to pay $12+ per patty.
