October 16, 2009 marked the Grand Opening for Burger Bar San Francisco. On the first two days, the restaurant hosted 2,000+ customers! What a success!
Thanks to my parents, I was privileged to attend the Grand Opening Party. Following the party, we dined in the restaurant. It was exciting to see everyone eager for the Burger Bar experience. Adding to the excitement, Chef Hubert Keller, and his right-hand man Chef Laurent Pillard were greeting customers and giving samples of Mini Chocolate Burgers and Mini Milkshakes. How fun!

Plates of sliders were being served throughout the night. Angus, chicken, and salmon.
Personally served by Chef Hubert! I couldn’t say no, and I’m glad I didn’t. So tasty! Creamy and full of taste! This particular milkshake was Caramel and Coffee.
Where the Magic Happens
Our party was given a tour of the busy kitchen and the meat kitchen.
The entrance is to the right. Behind the glass doors is the private dining room, where larger parties and private events will be hosted.

The Beer Pairing
The menu holds 24 beers on tap and 80+ bottles to choose from. Not only that, there’s also an extensive wine list, cocktails, and virgin and adult milkshakes.
This is the Avery Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest. Delicious! A deep, malty flavor with tasty hops.
Country Natural beef topped with Dijon Mustard and whole peppercorns. Served on a toasted white bread, with skinny fries. Also served with a creamy peppercorn sauce on the side. If you love peppercorns, you will absolutely love this burger! It was cooked perfectly medium. The taste of the beef is delicious on its own.
I can’t wait to go back to try the rest of the menu!
