My last visit to Jamaica Plain was Grass Fed and glorious after visiting the new burger bar on Centre Street, which recently opened where Bon Savor once was. Located just a few doors down from its sister restaurant, Ten Tables JP, Grass Fed is the fourth nom-venture for owner Krista Kranyak.
The casual eatery specializes in organic grass fed burgers, ground fresh daily and served up on a buttered bun until 11pm, seven days a week. There's no shortage of toppings, perfect for modifying your masterpiece, and double stacking is always an option.
The Cali Burger, topped with avocado, onion, pepperjack cheese and aioli, was an instant favorite.
The veg-friendly establishment also offers up a mean Chickpea Burger, while other menu items include a variety of salads, poutines, sandwiches and sides, along with a selection of "adults only" milkshakes spiked with booze.
The Onion Rings were another must, fried in a heavy batter which held up crunch until the last bite.
While seating is limited, there's plenty of standing room and counter-space available. The long list of local beers and unique wine selection is definitely a draw, while the staff is so friendly it's easy to find yourself settling in at the bar and socializing for a bit. The milkshakes are un-real (especially the salted caramel) and will likely be the death of me come bikini season, but in the grand scheme of things, death by boozy milkshake doesn't sound all that bad.
