Elevation Burger in Rye Brook Shakes Things UpPosted by Stacy
Are burgers the new black? Elevation Burger is not only the new black but its green too. No longer is the burger considered the highlight of the children’s menu. So many burger places are opening not only in Westchester , but everywhere.
Ingredients matter is not only the slogan at the new Elevation Burger located in the Rye Ridge shopping center but also a reflection of the company’s constant focus on offering quality food that makes a difference to both the consumer and the environment. Using organic beef , the restaurant also serves fresh-cut fries cooked in heart-healthy, 100% olive oil as well as hand-scooped milkshakes made with antibiotic- and hormone-free milk. No corn, no antibiotics, no hormones, no chemicals, just honest, healthy food.
We’re elevating hamburgers and the environment in which we serve them to a whole new level,” said Elevation Burger owner Daniel Magnus, of Rye, N.Y., who owns the exclusive franchise rights for Westchester County and Fairfield County, Conn. “Above all else, though, it’s about taste, taste, taste. Better ingredients make for better flavor. We have the best-tasting burgers in the business.
Elevation Burger offers an extensive menu of seven different patties, including a build-your-burger option and two vegetarian burgers, one of which is vegan and made with organic ingredients. Burger lovers can choose from a variety of fresh toppings and finish off their meal with fresh-cut fries cooked in 100% olive oil and a thick milkshake made from freshly-scooped, ice cream blended with a choice of mix-ins. A classic Elevation Burger runs at an affordable $5.79.
If you don’t want the bun (save the bread and order the fries), they’ll wrap your burger in a large lettuce leaf, which I thought was very cool, and went well with the philosophy. The “half the guilt” burger ($5.49) sounded great to me ,because for me guilt and eating go hand and hand, and Stacy Knows — it’s one of the biggest sellers. It’s one beef patty and one veggie patty of your choice.
The basic elevation burger ($5.79) is double meat and double cheese; the cheese is aged Vermont cheddar. A smaller version is $3.99, and without cheese, a plain burger costs $3.99.
The price varies for Vertigo burgers because the name refers to the number of patties you want to stack up in one sandwich; I foresee a contest in the near future. There are two veggie burgers ($3.99 each): One is made from fire-roasted bell peppers, corn and mozzarella cheese, and the other is vegan (broccoli, rice, rolled oats and carrots).
There’s also the Elevation salad ($5.99), which combines romaine, pecans, croutons and mandarin oranges, and a grilled cheese sandwich ($2.99) that comes with any toppings you like. Actually, every sandwich comes with your choice of toppings, as many and as much as you desire: ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, caramelized onions, mustard, mayo, and raw onions. Elevation sauce (a secret), balsamic mustard and hot pepper relish can be piled on your burger or placed on
the side so you can build your own creation.
The Milkshakes were A-MAZING! Possibly the best I’ve ever had. The ice cream was thick, and you get to choose from a list of mix-ins. I sampled a few shakes, including a chocolate and black cherry, a vanilla with banana and Oreos and a chocolate coffee with special Elevation cookies.
The motto of Elevation Burger is “Ingredients Matter.”
I hope the shop itself is here to stay because it deserves a place for the long run, and the fact is, ingredients do matter. So if you’ve been searching for that elusive perfect patty, try one here. No gimmicks, just grass.
