Walking into to Post 390, I was greeted by atmosphere of swankily dark and modern furniture, walls of exposed brick and a slew of tables packed tightly and going on seemingly forever throughout this spacious two-floor restaurant. The dining room offered dramatically large windows that welcomed in some natural light and at only about a year old, this restaurant was filled to the brim and bustling with business folks, Back Bay residents and visitors. Somewhere in the mix of all of this sat me and my dining companion, the Burger expert himself, Richard, from Boston Burger Blog. Richard's blog is about his quest for the "Perfect Burger" and when he invited me to tag along to try out one of the contenders, I was psyched and already getting hunger pangs for a big, juicy cheesy burger.
So there we sat, talking shop ("shop" in this case of course being food) when we were presented with our cheeseburgers. They looked like your average good old fashioned cheeseburger. Dressed up slightly by a spear skewering pickles and a little sliver of jalepeno pepper, they looked your average run of the mill cheeseburger. I bit into mine and was instantly satisfied by the familiar taste of cheeseburger. I did however think the sesame flecked bun was a little lacking as the top was sort of oddly peeling off (and not because it was toasted) and for $15, I thought the bread holding together my sweet juicy burger could have been a little better. Accompanying my burger was a side of hot salty French fries. There wasn't anything terribly outrageous with these, but they still hit the spot.
