A new recruit Baconator (from the AltPortland blog) chimes in on what the old Nocturnal space turned into on Burnside:
Menu description: Black & Bleu Burger Char-broiled 1/2 pound hand formed fresh burger coated in blackening seasoning on grilled focaccia bun with rogue bleu cheese, pepper
bacon, mayo, lettuce, tomato served with fresh-cut fries. ($12)
This "Special" Cheeseburger was putting on some serious airs. 12 bucks for a half-pound of overcooked beef with bleu cheese & pepper bacon -- though to be honest, this tasted just like any other bacon cheeseburger. Fries are homemade, and still rather tasty (don't remember about the pickle)
NOTE: Looks like the prices have been adjusted downward recently. The 1/2 pounder is $9.00 and there is a $7.00 1/3 pounder at lunch with fries.
