Update: Vermont's Worthy Burger to Open New Location of Worthy Kitchen in Brookline
[Ed note: This article was updated on April 11 to reflect new information given.]
A Vermont burger and beer bar that has quickly become an institution of sorts is expanding to the Boston area.
According to a source, Worthy Burger in South Royalton is looking to come to the local area, with a message from the place confirming that they are just starting with the permitting process for a new location. Worthy Burger first opened in 2012 and almost immediately began to get press from media outlets in Vermont and closer to Boston for its wood-fired burgers and craft beer list that includes some of the most sought-after beers in the state and elsewhere in New England. The eating and drinking spot, which is located in an old freight house, is run by Dave Brodrick (who founded the Blind Tiger in New York), Executive Chef Jason Merrill, and CFO Kurt Lessard.
Worthy Burger also has a sister restaurant--a "farm diner" in Woodstock called Worthy Kitchen that offers comfort food and a list of local and regional craft beers.
The website for Worthy Burger (and Worthy Kitchen) can be found at http://worthyvermont.com/
[April 11-12 update: Boston Magazine states that the new spot will be a second location of Worthy Kitchen, and that it will be opening later this year at 202 Washington Street in Brookline Village, which is where both Alere and Project 202 had been hoping to open over the past few years.]
