Lumberyard Tavern
Must Order: Lamb Burger

This casual establishment boasts a large selection of premium whiskeys, craft beers and great food. But what to order? If you ask owner Lisa Belasco, it’s the Greek-inspired Lamb Burger, which has become a crowd favorite since it landed on the menu. The dish starts off with perfectly ground lamb cooked to a succulent medium-rare. Then, it’s layered with fresh spinach, tomatoes, pickled onions and a creamy Tzatziki sauce. Finally, to add structure, it’s all piled high on a fresh pretzel bun.
