BurgerFi Introduces New Plant Burger; Prix-Fixe Menus and Wine Dinners

BurgerFi serves “Beyond Burger”: Plant-based burger like no other

The east and west Delray Beach locations for BurgerFi are just three of eight places in this national chain to roll out The Beyond Burger this week, a plant-based, guaranteed to run red (beet) juice, non-GMO-soy-gluten alternative that fans say tastes just like meat.

It certainly looks like meat (pictured), and is served with the bun, pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, ketchup and American cheese, for $8.27. Vegan versions are available, too, for $8.77.

So you can follow that “I’ve gotta have a burger” urge now, no matter your diet. The plant-based burger was developed by Beyond Meat, a company with investors who include Bill Gates, Twitter co-founders, a former McDonald’s CEO, Honest Tea founder Seth Goldman, the Humane Society and more.

Two locations: 6 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach; 14851 Lyons Road, Delray Marketplace; 7959 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. A planned Boynton location is set to open this year.
