Binghamton Restaurant Week is underway, offering discounted prices on three course lunch and dinner meals at selected restaurants.

One of those restaurants is Burger Mondays, right in downtown Binghamton at State and Henry Streets.

One might ask what a vegetarian is doing at a place called Burger Mondays, but take a look at the menu.  The Animal Lovers burger is a fabulous pesto marinated Portabella mushroom burger with roasted bell pepper, tomato, cucumber and mozzarella with home-made aioli on a perfectly toasted roll (never underestimate what the flavor of the roll can contribute to a sandwich) and a heaping pile of thin cut, crispy French fries.

Dinner started with a delicious hummus with grilled pita wedges and pickled peppers, followed by the burger and topped off with a fruit crisp en-robed in warm spices.

The service was fantastic and everyone was so friendly.

Restaurant Week benefits local charities as well as the diners and the restaurants.
