Farm Burger coming to town

Farm Burger coming to town

Grass-fed, dry-aged, fresh ground-burgers have not given up on downtown Asheville. After a year and a half of scouting locations, the owners of the Atlanta-based Farm Burger confirm that they are doing their darndest to come north.

“We are negotiating a space and want to come to Asheville,” said owner George Frangos. “There is a spot that we're looking at right now.”

However, Frangos added that speculation about where the restaurant might finally settle is premature at this point since several of their real estate deals have already fallen through. “Until we've got ink to paper and turned over the check and signed it all up — we don't want to put the cart in front of the horse, so to speak,” he said.

Farm Burger has two locations in Atlanta and a sister fine dining restaurant in Athens, Ga. All three restaurants offer a Southern take on traditional favorites. In Atlanta, the burgers come cooked to order and topped with delightfully reinvented traditional delicacies such as cured lardo (herbed fatback), roasted bone marrow and oxtail marmalade. For those who aren't ready to jump on the “use the whole animal” bandwagon, Farm Burger also offers standard toppings, a veggie quinoa burger and sweet potato fries.
