ATLANTA - When is the last time you checked out East Atlanta Village?
If it's been awhile, you owe it to yourself to take a cruise down Flat Shoals Avenue and while you're there, you owe it to yourself to enjoy a Plancha Burger from Argosy.
The signature burger at Argosy consists of two four ounce patties, caramelized onions, American cheese, and pickles, served on a H and F bun. That's it, nothing more. In fact, there is only one modification or upgrade even allowed...bacon is optional.
It's a less is more mentality, but that is not referring to the size or the sustenance of the Plancha Burger, it is simply referring to the number of additional ingredients. Ingredients that can sometimes take away from taste of a burger rather than enhance it.
It's good, really good, and on their Sunday brunch menu they serve a breakfast version of this local favorite that includes a friend egg and bacon, and you can even substitute grits for their house cut fries.
And speaking of the fries, you can almost taste the extra TLC with which they are prepared...but that's a feature story for another day.
At Argosy, they pride themselves on sourcing much of their menu from local and regional purveyors, and that philosophy also applies to their vast selection of hand crafted beers (once again, a feature story for another day).
