Sunday Sessions at Palate Food + Wine

A burger that sounds good and a burger that is good don’t always go hand in hand. We’ve ordered enough meat and buns off restaurant menus to know this. But every once in a while you get one of those wow burgers. A burger that you tell people about. A burger that makes your mouth water just thinking about it. Palate has one of those burgers.

Every Sunday at Palate Food + Wine in Glendale, in addition to their entire wine bar menu, they feature unique wine pairings and a “Single Dish” that changes weekly. Last weeks featured dish was one of the better burgers we’ve had recently. The palate burger is an 8 oz. blend of chuck, top sirloin and wagyu beef with a heirloom tomato, lettuce, rich and creamy garlic aïoli, topped with homemade pickles. The patty was seasoned perfectly with fresh herbs, cooked medium rare with a light char. And that decadent aïoli is served on the side to dip your frites in. This is a burger we won’t soon forget. Good news is, it’s on their menu nightly in the bar. Sign up on their Web site to get alerts on both the Sunday Session and Supper special menus.

The lamb pot served with thin, lightly salted, crispy slices of bread.

Palate is a must stop for any wine lover. They have a wine store in the back, wine storage if you’re so inclined, tasting events, and a great wine list featuring mostly French and California wines.
