New burger joint at Smith and Baltic streets.
How many burger places can Bococa handle? Add one more to the mix with Burger on Smith at 209 Smith Street in Baltic at the old Faan space. There are 12 burgers on the menu, including the First Date, a beef burger with cheddar, fresh onions, pickled onions, caramelized onions, arugula and garlic aioli (I think they were joking with the name). There are options to make your own burger combo, housemade pickled veggies and three kinds of fries—hand cut, spiced and garlic and parsley.
