COURTESY GO BURGER
Go Burger serves burgers and sandwiches in Gentilly.
(1522 Robert E. Lee Blvd., 504-283-9062)
, a burger and sandwich spot from the owners of Ethan’s Hot Dogs,
is now open in Gentilly.
The restaurant began a soft-opening period in late August, serving burgers, sandwiches and sides out of a small Robert E. Lee Boulevard strip-mall. Fashioning itself as a “gourmet” burger joint, executive chef Adam Krolikowski says he uses fresh ingredients and sources locally whenever possible.
“The concept is fast casual," Krolikowski says "Making high-end burgers using the best quality ingredients but at a much lower price point. We’re still in the beginning phases, but the goal is to do everything in house — burgers, bread, fries, sauces.”
Single-patty hamburgers feature Black Angus chuck patties topped with pickles, lettuce, onion, tomato and mayonnaise, mustard or ketchup.
The restaurant’s namesake burger includes ham, cheese, caramelized onions, Creole aioli and a fried egg on a brioche bun.
A chili cheeseburger is topped with homemade chili, cheddar and bacon bits. Sandwiches include a Reuben served on marbled rye and a smoked-bacon grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread.
Sides include burger shack standbys such as fries, potato tots and onion rings and a few New Orleans stalwarts including red beans and rice with Cajun sausage and jambalaya.
Kid-friendly options include mini burgers and grilled sandwiches and milkshakes will be available in coming weeks.
Krolikowski, who hails from the Northeast and previously worked as a chef at Restaurant R’evolution
, says a Westbank outpost of Go Burger will open in the coming weeks on Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero.
Also in the works from Krolikowski and his team: Flambeaux’s
, a full-service burger and seafood restaurant on Canal Street in the Central Business District. It is slated to open this fall.
Go Burger will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
