Despite previous reports that it would debut on Tuesday, chef Paul Shoemaker's new burger joint, Juicy Lucy, is now open and serving the Taste food court at Figat7th in Downtown. Named for those Midwest-born burgers that tuck the cheese into the meat, Juicy Lucy is the former Bastide and Savory chef's first step into the world of fast-casual concepts. Vapor oven-cooked burgers are the focus here, centering on market produce toppings and grass-fed beef from Santa Ynez that gets nitro-injected with Shoemaker's handmade cheese fondue, a blend of three cheeses. Checking in on Lucy, we saw a small crowd gathered to order beef burgers and their turkey counterparts, along with aguas frescas and the Sriracha cheese fries you see above. Check out a few more shots of the restaurant's look and food offerings, and the full menu, down below.
