In a tiny space on Harrison Avenue, he makes burgers and sandwiches from scratch. He won’t reveal the blend of the ground beef (“Nothing strange or odd,” Jaeger said. “No pigeon, or nothing”), but he does grind it fresh every day. The buns, buttered and grilled to order, are by Susan Spicer’s Wild Flour Breads.
If you’re old fashioned, there’s also the option of a classy, spongy Bunny bun.Over the spring, Andrew Jaeger opened Jaeger Burger Co. (872 Harrison Ave., 504-482-1441), a small burger joint in the middle of Lakeview’s busiest section.
Jaeger Burger is a tiny operation with counter service and a short menu of burgers and sandwiches (there’s a grilled fish sandwich and a chilled shrimp salad), and a few sides, including poutine-style cheese fries, all of which are also served at Bucktown Burger & Seafood.
I had the fresh grilled fish sandwich and large cheese fries, while the only thing that I was missing was a nice cold beer.
