If you know us Porter Road Butchers, you know we love supporting both our neighbors and our neighborhoods—on both sides of town. So you could imagine we were pretty excited when our West Nashville neighbor Richard Blais himself stopped by the shop earlier this year to talk about a partnership between Porter Road Butcher and Flip Burger Boutique.
Because Porter Road Butcher now has the power and aid of Porter Road Butcher Meat Company to supplement our labor in the realm of wholesaling product, we can provide more delicious meat to more amazing restaurants at a more frequent and more regular rate. We know that saying goes “less is more” but when it comes to our meat being consumed around Nashville, we believe that more is more: The more local, pasture-raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free meat that we can provide to our city, the better. Are we right?
…that was a rhetorical question. (We are right.)
When Flip Burger Boutique first opened their doors back in January we were psyched to have a specialty burger already on their menu, the butcher’s cut (PRB beef, crumbled Emmi Roth buttermilk blue cheese, caramelized onions, soy truffle vinaigrette, frisee, pickled shallots, and red wine jam $11.75), a special item to this Nashville Flip location.
Today, however, with PRB MC taking off in the wholesaling sphere and with Flip Burger running right along our side, we’re excited and proud to announce that there are now more PRB burger options on Flip’s menu. Cue the happy dance.
In addition to the already well-loved butcher’s cut burger, Flip has added a brand spankin’ new PRB burger (8 oz. porter road locally sourced patty with cheddar, pecan smoked bacon, bibb lettuce, and ketchup $14), made just the way Chris and James like to prepare their own: no mayo, no mustard, no onion, no fuss.
The lamburger also received an upgrade, swapping out their previous patty for our locally sourced Tavalin Tails lamb (feta cheese, marinated vegetables, arugula, pickled red onion, tzatziki, garam masala spice $12.75).
And maybe best of all, Flip added a “PRB Upgrade” option which can be applied to any of their burgers at $3 for a patty and $6 for an 8oz. upgrade. Other upgrades include a gluten-free bun ($1) and a lettuce wrap to eliminate any real bun altogether.
So while a hamburger certainly isn’t your go-to choice for “healthy eating,” at the very least you can digest easy after eating America’s sandwich sweethert, knowing that your juicy and delicious burger came from a local, responsible, salt-of-the-earth farmer, and that your “lettuce bun” contains pretty much zero calories. And is green. So that feels good. It’s about as “healthy” as a burger can get.
Of course, Flip Burger may still be somewhat infamous for that Foi Gras Milkshake—and no offense, Flip Burger, we really do love you but the thought of it still makes our stomachs turn over—we’re confident (hoping?) that the presence of Porter Road Butcher meat on the menu will bring in some more mouths to the restaurant, and that our partnership will moreover bring more customers into the shop as well. Because that’s what neighbors to: Help and support one another.
It always feels good to be a friend to your neighbor, and we’re glad ours is so delicious!
