$5 Burger Bliss at Table 42 Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar

Sometimes at Gab, we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of the weekly grind that, by Wednesday, we are in serious need of a midweek wind-down. Table 42 Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar, a new Boca Raton hot spot in Royal Palm Place, is our secret weapon for taking the load off. Every Wednesday from 5pm-11:30pm, Table 42 attracts hundreds of trendy diners to $5 Burger Night, making Wednesday our official favorite night of the week.

Let us break it down for you:

Executive Chef Matthew Danaher (you may recognize him from DeVito South Beach or Vic & Angelo’s) starts with fresh Harris Ranch beef –all-natural, corn-fed beef grilled to juicy perfection from rare to well-done.

Not in the mood for a bun? No problem – although we do recommend Table 42’s airy, slightly sweet sesame bun. The list of gourmet toppings is the stuff of a foodie’s dreams, offering everything from thick strips of bacon, onions (Vidalia or caramelized), sautéed baby portabellos, beefsteak tomato, avocado, organic baby arugula or shaved lettuce, and a fried egg. Table 42’s sauces and spreads go beyond the standard ketchup and mayo, and include truffle aioli, crispy caper aioli, herb pesto, and “42” sauce. Top your burger with your choice of cheese, including goat, mozzarella (fresh or smoked), gorgonzola blue and aged provolone.

You could just as easily make a meal out of the gourmet quality sides: Sweet potato fries, French fries or a not-so-small house salad are yours for two bucks more. For three dollars, treat yourself to the truly addictive Truffle Fries. We dare you to try just one.

Then, sit back, have a cocktail, and enjoy the view. The former location of Coal Mine Pizza, Table 42 was recently redesigned by Karen Hanlon, interior designer of YOLO in Fort Lauderdale. The space now boasts a coal oven surrounded by luxe white marble, edgy red light fixtures, a tufted leather bar and other chic design touches. Table 42, which opened this past November, is quickly becoming the place to be for hip diners who know a thing or two about great food or simply want to see and be seen.

As loyal $5 Burger Night attendees, we can hardly believe how quickly the night has grown into a full-fledged phenomenon! We have a feeling it’s going to get even bigger… Last night, Owner Gary Rack launched a $5 Cocktail Menu – the perfect complement to a $5 Burger.

Between the hip décor, high-energy vibe, people watching, tasty cocktails, and the best burger you will ever eat (seriously), Table 42 is the place to be every Wednesday night.

So, what do the Gabbers check off on their Designer Burger card every week?

 Sesame bun, rare, fried egg, Vidalia onion, bacon, gorgonzola blue cheese, truffle aioli, truffle fries. Dip the truffle fries in the truffle aioli. Repeat.
