155 Fahrenheit Wants Old Montreal to Party With Gourmet Burgers and Bubbly

Temperature matters

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Code mandates that restaurants cook ground beef to 155 Fahrenheit for fifteen seconds. Enter 155 Fahrenheit, a new burgers-and-bubbly lounge slated to open soon in Old Montreal, in the former, and short-lived, Nero tapas bar. Owners Luciano Mercuri and Raphael Roussel describe 155 Fahrenheit as a "neighbourhood eatery."

More on the 64-seat restaurant here, unedited: "Tired of the same old fast food options and disappointed with the 'gourmet' burger restaurants, they decided to make their own gourmet burger and make it truly gourmet. After experimenting with a blend of different ground beefs, they were finally satisfied with their unique blend of Filet Mignon, Ribeye, and Prime Rib to make the best burger ever. But, not to leave out their vegetarian friends, They were sure to include plenty of vegetarian options on the menu."

Given the name, this place will presumably not overcook your burger. Stay tuned for developments on the new bar-restaurant, which hopes to open sometime next week.
