We have another American style burger place in town, and it’s a good one. Studio 54 (full website is in the works) is located down the street from the Markt on Putstraat. There is plenty of room inside to have dinner with a group of friends. The atmosphere is fun and lively and the servers were friendly and attentive during our visit.
But, let’s be honest, you want to know about the burgers. We visited Studio 54 during carnival weekend, which meant a limited menu but quick service. Even so, the burgers we chose, a classic cheeseburger and a burger with cooked onions, bacon and barbeque sauce, were both delicious with flavorful patties of local beef. We were able to eat both burgers without having to use a fork and knife, which is a rarity in the burger world in this area and a plus in my opinion.
Their full menu is filled with classic and inventive combinations that I’m sure we will be trying in the future. I have my eye on the burger with goat cheese, eggplant and a balsamic sauce. If you’re not a fan of beef, there are lamb, chicken, salmon and portobello burger options and a few salads too. Mini burgers are also available for the kids or a set of three for the grown up appetite.
In the spirit of carnival, we also tried one of their desserts, the lemon cheesecake, which was a tasty way to end our visit. I’m already looking forward to visiting this restaurant again in the near future.
