Helen Ryba's Favorite Burger
The host of "The Chef's Plate - A Taste of New England" says The Local Burger at the Local Eatery is her favorite burger.
As host of “The Chef’s Plate – A Taste of New England,” I am able to visit and sample food at restaurants throughout New Hampshire and Massachusetts. When I think about my favorite burger, a few come to mind, but one in particular — The Local Burger at the Local Eatery in Laconia. Executive chef/owner Kevin Halligan is committed to using fresh and locally sourced ingredients for his menu.
Certified Local by the Farm to Restaurant Connection, his menu is full of items from local farms and purveyors, including the beef in his burger. The Local Burger with bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried egg, lettuce and tomato all on a freshly baked brioche bun (baked at Kevin’s bakery, the Laconia Village Bakery) is yummo! The burger is super juicy and moist, and comes with a side of simply delicious fries, all for only $11. Pair that with a local beer and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s one of the best burgers available in the state.
