The onion soup burger at Poste

Onion Soup Burger at Poste Moderne Brasserie

French dip meets French onion soup meets hamburger in Chef Dennis Marron’s indulgence. He puts a Virginia grass-fed beef patty on an onion bun and slathers on mayo and caramelized onions from the restaurant’s French onion soup. Then he melts comté cheese over it and dips the top of the bun in French onion soup.
