AKA – “BurgerMonger”
Crime: Cattle Thief
Jake Hickton aka “BurgerMonger” has been charged with stealing all the Akaushi Kobe to make the best burgers in town! Tierra Verde resident Jake Hickton brings a fine dining/prime steakhouse mentality to the fast casual-dining scene. From teenage busboy at the elegant, old Park Schenley in Pittsburgh, his career took him from Morton’s, Capital Grille and Ted’s Montana Grill to senior vice president of operations at Mastro’s, a high-end steakhouse chain based in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Partnered with Bob Slane, a former McKinsey consultant in California, Hickton launched BurgerMonger here because of the market’s reputation as a cradle of new restaurant chains like Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, Checkers, Beef ‘O’ Brady’s and Melting Pot. BurgerMonger opened its first location in the Bay region in 2011.
The beef is grain-fed Akaushi Kobe raised in Texas, a Japanese breed that’s rated above USDA prime. The buns are egg and butter-richened Challah bread. “Chophouse burgers and barstool shakes” has been added as Burger Monger’s tagline, and its new aesthetic is a clean, modern one, with black-and-white exteriors. All five restaurants are to be renovated by the end of 2019, with the company looking to begin a “regional expansion” after that.
