The Capella Hotel in Georgetown has revamped their restaurant, The Grill Room, over the past few months with the introduction of Chef Frank Ruta and Pastry Chef Aggie Chin. I had the opportunity to try their newest menu addition, a burger, just in time for the spring and summer season.
I sampled the Mortadella Burger, which I highly recommend. It was complete with Angus beef, The Grill Room's signature bun, mayonnaise, griddled mortadella, Onion jam and finally a truffle cheese. Truffle flavoring always adds an extra burst of flavor and it completed the burger. Tempranillo wine was offered, complementing all of the burger options. A crowd favorite was the Duck Egg Burger with a fried egg and mushroom condiment that also featured the truffle cheese. If you are looking for a more classic version, the Grill Room Burger features the Angus beef patty with the truffle cheese and mayonnaise. Either way you cannot go wrong with these fantastic options.
A trip to The Grill Room could not be complete without trying something straight from Aggie Chin's unique pastry repertoire. To continue with the burger theme she created a Burger Macaron. The Macaron featured a chocolate ganache patty and white chocolate cheese, in addition to being an exact replica to a cheeseburger. Burgers are the perfect summer treat and I would recommend trying one of The Grill Room's options next time you are in Georgetown!
