Oui, on mange des hamburgers...

It’s simultaneously frustrating and exciting to talk to un-initiated French people about hamburgers. On one hand, they make declarations, Jose Bové-style, about the pitiful state of American food, and you have to listen to it. On the other hand, you get to prove them wrong.

Enter the Blue Smoke burger. This is no secret, and for cause. It is simply exceptional, perfectly medium rare, served relatively plain with a steamy pink core and a slight smoky taste. The brioche bun puts the normal rubbery sandwich-sleeve to shame. And it only sets you back $10. I mean, 7 euros. And it’s nothing like “MacDo.”
