Christian Page and the Cassell’s Hamburgers team in Koreatown are grinding up a whole cow today in Koreatown, so you'd better get down there. The party, dubbed a Man vs. Steer Grind (seems unlikely the cow got any shots in, frankly) runs from 5 p.m. tonight until closing, and is in celebration of National Burger Day, which PR people have agreed is today.
Page, a bit of a burger historian and ground beef aficionado, actually won the battle with a nearly 750-pound Northern California cow a few weeks ago. Following a two-day butchering session, he’s been aging the beef for weeks in preparation for today’s grind, which will add up to nearly 600 pounds of everything from belly to chuck to brisket to sirloin.
The whole menu of beefy options can be found below, but they range from a $19 sirloin and belly burger (topped with foie gras, because why not) and a $17 filet mignon burger to a ground chuck Jucy Lucy-style beef and bun combo (that’s the one where they put cheese right inside the patty) and a $14 chicken fried steak.
The party last for one night only though, so make your way to K-town for burgers and some craft beer if you’re interested.
