Two and a half weeks after Lawson's Finest Liquids launched its new brewery in Waitsfield, another local favorite is coming to the Mad River Valley town.
Worthy Burger Too will open Thursday, November 8, at 114 Mad River Green, co-owner Jason Merrill said. The restaurant will share a menu with the original Worthy Burger, which opened in South Royalton in 2012.
As its name suggests, Worthy Burger is best known for burgers, which it makes from grass-fed beef and grills over a hardwood fire. Hand-cut French fries are cooked in beef tallow, and the tap list is heavy on local brews.
The Waitsfield kitchen will be run by a pair of Worthy vets: chef Eric Hodet, formerly of the South Royalton restaurant; and Cavan Little from Worthy Kitchen in Woodstock. Worthy Burger Too will likely add to its menu after it's up and running, Merrill said; one addition could be the fried chicken sandwich from Worthy Kitchen.
The 85-seat restaurant, closed on Tuesdays, will open at 4 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; and at 11:30 a.m. Fridays through Sundays.
