If there is one thing we know about DC, it’s that people are passionate about burgers – especially with the boom of the “better burger.” Well, Smashburger may be just that – better – locking in juicy flavor by smashing down fresh, never frozen angus beef on a 400 degree flat grill, made to order every time.
During a media preview party Tuesday night, guests tried each of the seven distinctive burger recipes and savory sides — and even got to smash burgers of their own. In honor if its national partnership with HONEST® Tea, co-founder Seth Goldman paired each burger with a complementary tea, explaining its origins and health benefits.
Goldman paired the Spicy Veggie Black Bean Burger with HONEST Honey Green Tea (awarded by Men’s Health magazine the “King of the Catechins”) and paired his favorite tea – the Heavenly Lemon Tulsi (made from a healing herb in India for the mind, body and spirit) with the Classic Chicken sandwich.
Smashburger’s partnership with HONEST Tea speaks to its company values – to offer the best out there without cutting corners – premium, quality, honest ingredients.
All of the menu items at Smashburger are under $6, whether you go with the classics… like the Truffle Mushroom Swiss Burger or the BBQ Bacon & Cheddar Burger… or the recipes that set it apart from other burger joints, like Häagen-Dazs® milkshakes, Chicken Sandwiches, Salad, Smashfries, or flash fried Veggie Frites.
The Bethesda location will feature regional specialties only found in the DC metropolitan area (try The Capital Burger and Capital Chicken Sandwich) and is looking to feature a local brewer that can provide six types of bottled beer. With health in mind, it’s looking to source as much as possible from local farmers, bring gluten-free options in the spring and continue to serve HONEST Teas.
It’s a smash!
