If you're a restaurant and you put the word “burger” in your name, then you better actually make a good burger. A&B on Causeway Street does in fact make a very good burger, several of them, actually. You can expect a lot of more high-end ingredients than you get at a typical burger joint, like burrata, fig jam, and apples. The beef blend is excellent: juicy and perfectly cooked. Everything else on the menu is pretty standard bar food, though, and the atmosphere is a little sterile. Keep it in mind for when you’re heading to the Garden and want some decent food in addition to the normal pre-game beers.
