Eat: Elevation Burger

March 23, 2012 | By | Comments (6)

We get the opportunity to meet a lot of different food professionals. Some meetings are more exciting, some more informative, but few really knock our socks off.  A couple of  weeks ago, I was lucky enough to meet the folks from Elevation Burger, and they  knocked my socks off.

Because I can’t figure out a better way to say it, I’ll share with you what the EB team has to say about their work:

“Ingredients Matter” is not just Elevation Burger’s slogan, but also a reflection of the company’s single-minded focus on offering quality food that is better for customers and for the environment.”

Some sock-knocking facts about Elevation Burger:

  • Their burgers are made with 100% free range, organic, grass fed beef beef
  • All of the meat for their burgers is ground on the premises
  • They have bamboo floors
  • The french fries are fried in olive oil
  • Your burger doesn’t start cooking until you order it: no heat lamps, no microwaves

I’ve made the argument in the past that for our food system to change—for safe and sustainable to become the standard, for organic to become affordable—the fast food world would have to change. It won’t happen overnight, but Elevation Burger (and the passionate people behind it) is a step in the right direction.

It’s a burger we can all feel good about.
