Two Boroughs Burger, Two Boroughs Larder

(Charleston, South Carolina)

Like Halley's Comet, a Two Boroughs burger is a rare thing of beauty. If you're lucky enough to score one – just 24 are made every Wednesday, and only after 5 p.m. – you will achieve a kind of Motz-ian burger bliss. The main event here, which is cooked in a black-steel pan, is made from two five-ounce patties of local beef, ground with a proprietary spice blend, topped with slices of Nueske's bacon, a drippy Mornay cheese sauce, and an ever-changing special pickle, all on an artisanal benne-seed bun. Once, when Motz brought in about six people and nearly decimated that night's supply, he found his burger topped with a kale-kimchi combo as that night's pickle option. He won't stop talking about it to this day. "The people who make these are burger savants," he says.
