Or tomorrow. Just caught up with owner/chef Brian Luscher of The Grape. He says:
Luscher: I just found out. I just got back from a lil’ stay-cation and everyone is asking me “Have you heard? Have you heard?” I knew we did well because they [T.M.] came out for a photo session a few weeks ago. I am blown away. I have always thought “that if a joint has a burger, you can judge the quality of the place based on the burger.
Lusher: None. We just don’t treat it [or anything else] as an after thought. Whether it is our awesome f&%*$-ing cheeseburger [I just hollered that out loud a little bit!], or a wine dinner, or an order of mussels, we put forth our best effort. Not to mention the fact that basically every burger gets cooked by our Chef de Cuisine Karin Porter, a.k.a. Chaparra. I am proud. Really proud.
NN: When can we eat them?
Luscher: We are going to offer the “Classic Cheeseburger” all day on Sundays for right now [normally brunch only]. We have other plans that we will release at a later date.
So, TexMo, I hope we didn’t steal any of your thunder. That just wouldn’t be nice.
