Beta Burger Is Opening in Boston's Mission Hill Neighborhood

A burger spot that features customized hamburgers using high-tech equipment and rather interesting cooking techniques is on its way to Boston.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Beta Burger is planning to open on Tremont Street in the city's Mission Hill neighborhood, with founder Adrian Wong hoping to have the eatery become what the article says would be "the Chipotle of the beef-and-bun segment, but with an unusual cooking technique." Wong plans to offer burgers cooked using a water vapor oven that makes the patties particularly moist, with the burgers being cooked for approximately an hour at 135 degrees, mirroring the currently popular sous vide style of cooking. When orders are placed, the burgers are then transferred to a grill where "texture, flavor, and visual appeal" are given to the patties.

[July 9 update: BostInno mentions (via an interview with the founder) that Beta Burger plans to open in early August.]

[October 19 update: Eater Boston states that Beta Burger has its grand opening this Thursday (October 22).]

The address for this new burger spot in Mission Hill is: Beta Burger, 1437 Tremont Street, Boston (Roxbury Crossing), MA, 02120. The website for the restaurant can be found at
