Fresh To Order Fires Up Menu with Bison Burger

With the summer heat comes burger season, which oftentimes conflicts with keeping in shape for swimsuit season. For Fresh To Order (f2o) guests, enjoying the new bison burger is the best of both worlds. Once a limited-time offer, the bison burger will be an option for summertime and beyond for $10.90, served with a salad and toppings.

Made with ground bison, dried cherries, and a few trade secrets, and served with baby field greens, horseradish aioli, and caramelized onions, the burger clocks in at less than 600 calories. Guests can watch as their burgers and more are cooked to order on a flame grill in the open-display kitchen.

“By adding the bison burger to our lineup of better-for-you burgers, which includes the healthful and flavor-packed black bean and tuna burgers, we’re giving our guests another way to satisfy their burger cravings,” says Jesse Gideon, Fresh To Order’s COO and corporate chef. “Our burgers go beyond what you would typically expect, from both a nutritional profile and the bold flavor combinations.”

For example, the ginger scallion tuna burger boasts horseradish aioli, Asian slaw, and baby field greens on a grilled whole-wheat flatbread. Fresh To Order’s black bean burger brings together avocado, house-pickled jalapenos, lettuce, tomatoes, corn relish, and horseradish honey mustard in grilled whole-wheat flatbread.      

In addition to the permanent addition of the bison burger, the restaurant will introduce fresh peaches as part of its seasonal fruit rotation for its spinach salad. Hand selected by the Fresh To Order chefs, it includes dressing made-from-scratch, dried cherries, toasted almonds, fresh strawberries, and domestic blue cheese crumbles.

“Changing seasonal fruits and vegetables like peaches give our dishes a quick fun update while taking advantage of the best quality ingredients out there,” Gideon says.

This summer Fresh To Order will also serve up a sweet finish to every meal with the addition of two new desserts. Both the Banana Caramel Icebox Pie and Strawberry Lemonade Pie will be available for a limited time. All the pies are made with all natural ingredients and rotate seasonally.
