This past week the team-member owned, 31 location RAM Restaurant Group introduced their limited time BurgerRama menu selections. The RAM Restaurant & Brewery along with C.B.& Potts Restaurant & Brewery are proudly presenting eight all-new burgers, grilled melts, and sandwiches. “Flavorful, fun and stylish” is how Chef James P. Cassidy, Culinary Leader at The RAM, describes this year’s BurgerRama choices. “ Our culinary team has created food enjoyment using exciting trend styles with great flavors in every creation.”
The RAM’s love of cooking with their own craft beers stands out with the Beer Geek burger. A fresh, never frozen,100% USDA Choice natural beef patty is seared over an open-flame broiler and topped with Amber Ale braised onion and red pepper marmalade, Hefeweizen stone-ground mustard aioli, Porter ketchup, IPA braised applewood-smoked bacon, and creamy Wisconsin havarti cheese. It’s all on a grilled brioche bun. Chef Cassidy recommends complementing this burger with their fresh and local 71 Pale Ale.
The Southern Baja Sandwich is sure to be a guest favorite; a Buttface Amber Ale-infused chicken breast on a grilled hoagie roll, topped with charred tomatillo salsa, and Wisconsin jalapeno pepper jack cheese. It boasts a grilled smoky Anaheim pepper, chipotle aioli, pig candy and is topped with flavorful chipotle-tarragon slaw. The Chicken Banh-Mi and Chicken Katsu sandwiches will also satisfy adventurous Asian flavor cravings.
Guests will love the Big Kahuna Tuna. This handmade burger with a blend of Ahi tuna, spicy sambal, fresh garlic and ginger, cilantro and onion, is seared on a piping hot grill. RAM chefs pile on the sweet and sour cucumber onion arugula salad, hot wasabi mayo, unagi sauce, fresh avocado and jalapeno, presented on a grilled brioche bun. “This sandwich is a wave of flavor and freshness all on one plate,” says Chef Cassidy.
The Broadway Melt will satisfy with every bite. Savory and umami dominate with this guest choice. It features a USDA choice natural beef patty charbroiled over an open flame. It is topped with fresh garlic balsamic roasted mushrooms, savory truffle mayonnaise, applewood-smoked bacon, roasted onion compote, bacon-onion jam and Wisconsin havarti, all on buttered and toasted rye. Chef Cassidy says, “Enjoy this culinary dream maker and toss back a pint of our Total Disorder Porter for that final taste explosion.”
Rounding out the BurgerRama menu is the Count Von Count burger, a garlic lover’s dream come true, and the Mamma Mia burger which combines all the traditional flavors of Italy.
