Go Burger (1522 Robert E. Lee Blvd., 504-283-9062), a burger and sandwich spot from the owners of Ethan's Hot Dogs (114 Baronne St., 504-227-3076; www.facebook.com/ethanshotdogs), opened in Gentilly. Executive chef Adam Krolikowski says the menu focuses on fresh ingredients and local sourcing whenever possible.
"The concept is fast casual — making high-end burgers using the best quality ingredients but at a much lower price point," Krolikowski says. "We're still in the beginning phases, but the goal is to do everything in house — burgers, bread, fries, sauces."
Hamburgers feature Black Angus chuck patties. The restaurant's namesake burger includes ham, cheese, caramelized onions, Creole aioli and a fried egg on a brioche bun. There also are sandwiches and sides.
Krolikowski hails from the Northeast and previously worked at Restaurant R'evolution.
Krolikowski says a West Bank Go Burger will open in the coming weeks on Lapalco Boulevard in Marrero. In fall, Krolikowski and his team also will open Flambeaux's, a full-service burger and seafood restaurant on Canal Street in the Central Business District.
Go Burger is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
