The famed Five burger , photographed in its previous home at Newstead Tower Public House
Just last week, the national food and restaurant website Eater offered a "Heat Map" of where to eat right now in St. Louis
. This week, as part of a celebration of all things burger, Eater has put together another "Heat Map" of fifteen of the "Country's Hottest Burgers"
-- and along with such hip spots as New York's Shake Shack and Los Angeles' Umami Burger, the map includes the burger from Five Bistro (5100 Daggett Avenue; 314-773-5553)
The brief blurb accompanying Five's inclusion mentions the burger's origin at the late Newstead Tower Public House and some blather from a local restaurant critic. In its Newstead incarnation, the burger was twice named the RFT
