National Burger Month

May is National Burger Month, and White City is the best place to celebrate.

How May became known as National Burger Month, no one really knows – less surprisingly, no one really cares – people just love burgers, and people love all the burger options available in White City.

A burger to go, a burger with a beer, specialty burgers, standard burgers, White City Shopping Center is home to some of the latest and greatest artisans known to pursue the perfect burger.

b.good  and Five Guys are two of the newest members of the White City community of commerce who specialize in making the perfect burger.

2Oven’s, while not specializing in burgers, offers their own specialty brick oven burger you can enjoy with a beer.

And of course, Jimmy’s Tavern offers the classic burger & brew atmosphere for celebrating National Burger Month.

IHOP has been a choice for generations of folks feeling the need to feed that burger yearning.

There are a lot of claims as to where and when the hamburger was originally invented. Some claim it was invented in Germany in the late 1800s, but most attribute the invention to various American entrepreneurs in the same time period.

In over a hundred years, the hamburger has come along way – and the mystery of who actually invented the burger is joined by the mystery of how May became National Burger Month.



2Ovens is Hot

2Ovens in White City Shopping Center was recently featured in Shrewsbury’s Daily Voice with an article, interview and video showing their amazing ovens at work.

The Daily Voice’s John Swinconeck visited 2Ovens and spoke with executive chef Jeff Tanner.

“2Ovens was an opportunity for us to leverage what we’re best at, which is brick oven cooking,” executive chef Jeff Tenner told the Daily Voice.

Readers can click here to read the entire article, and get a flavor for the eclectic style that makes 2Ovens a destination hot spot for food, drinks, and fun.



Five Guys Review

The Shrewsbury Lantern recently reviewed Five Guys Burgers & Fries in the “stunningly renovated White City plaza”.

Readers can see the full review in the Shrewsbury Lantern by clicking here, and salivate as the editor recounts food that, “is really nothing short of awesome”.

Five Guys offers burgers, dogs and fries, as well as a selection of vegetarian sandwiches.

Five Guys regularly wins rave reviews, but it’s always best to get some local flavor when it comes to choosing where to go.

As the reviewer notes, “I really can’t wait to go back for more, which really says something”…..yes, it does say something.

2ovens Now OPEN

2ovens is open!

2ovens, part of the Bertucci family of restaurants, is now open in White City Shopping Center – and it’s so much more than 2 ovens.

The ovens provide the foundation for many menu items which like the ever popular brick oven pizzas, to veggies, meat, poultry and fish.

The food is the basis, but 2ovens goes well beyond food to create an experience. A wide beer selection, wine, and handcrafted drinks set in a truly welcoming environment that makes everyday seem special.

It’s an inviting atmosphere for families, singles, friends and co-workers to meet and share a meal – and that can be literal at 2ovens as they promote “share plates” on their menu.
