November BOTMs Get All Fouled Up
With Halloween in the rear view, the seasonal BOTMs are out in full effect with three of this month’s four burgers consisting of bird patties. Sorry beef lovers– November just isn’t your month.
BGR The Burger Joint
BGR trots out its annual November burger, Thanksgiving on a Bun, complete with cornbread stuffing, cranberries and gravy smothering a turkey patty. Basically, it’s leftovers without the fancy Turkey Day dinner in the first place.
Speaking of Turkey Day scraps, Dogwood does their own version of the after-Thanksgiving meal with their Leftover Burger. Rather than top the turkey with stuffing like BGR, Dogwood mixes the dressing right in the patty and then tops it with fried potato round, arugula, tomato, Swiss, cranberry mustard and then serves it on a onion roll.

Instead of plain Jane turkey, Burger Tap & Shake steps it up a notch this month and goes duck burger on us. The Suzie Wong BOTM is a char-griddled duck patty with spicy pomegranate plum sauce, cucumber and scallions. Oh you fancy, BTS.

Bobby’s Burger Palace
The lone cow burg in this month’s lineup belongs to Bobby’s Burger Palace which brings back the Pacific Northwest BOTM with the oh-so-exciting toppings of white American cheese, cremini mushrooms and red wine BBQ sauce. Actually, those aren’t very exciting at all.
(We’re always on the lookout for BOTMs. If you know of another D.C.-area joint that hooks up a monthly special burger, email us and let us know.)
