My good friend just moved to Mount Vernon and we were looking for a quick bite. The Owl Bar was perfect. I have had drinks, but hadn’t tried the food. It’s located in the Belvedere on Chase Street, so we were able to walk from her new apartment.
We were easily able to snag two seats at the bar. The bartender was funny, there when we needed him, but not overly attentive. We were looking for a good burger, but weren’t super hungry. I was having a hard time deciding between all of their burger choices. But decided to keep it simple and split the Owl Bar Burger.
As you can see we added the duck fat fries! I think they might have been better than the ones at Salt. They serve them with truffle aioli and a little park on top. I am 100% sure, we didn’t leave a single one the plate.
Now, take a look at that burger – it was their own “special blend of chuck, short rib and brisket”. They topped it with the classic L,T, American cheese, super gratifying crispy bacon and grilled onion. I am not a huge fan of that fake yellow cheese. Although, it certainly isn’t out of place on a burger (or a grilled cheese for that matter). The best part for me was the pretzel roll. I mean look at this thing! It gave the burger a little sweet taste that perfectly matched the savory patty and bacon.
Go there… Get that burger. I really might have to find a spot for it on this list.
