A look at Steve Gontram’s 5 Star Burgers, opening today

October 8th 10:10am, 2012

It’s been quite a while since we told you about chef Steve Gontram’s newest venture, 5 Star Burgers. But today the doors to 5 Star Burgers will finally open at 8125 Maryland Ave., in Clayton. Gontram (pictured, right), who opened Harvest back in 1996, is embarking on his burger-laden path with the aid of his father, Bob Gontram (pictured, left), who has been developing 5 Star Burgers in New Mexico since 2008.

All of 5 Star’s beef, which is ground daily, hails from Creekstone Farms, where steers are humanely pasture-raised and grain finished for marbling and flavor. That beef is showcased in seven burger options on 5 Star’s menu, including the Breakfast of Champions (topped with a sunny-side-up egg, American cheese, roasted tomato-bacon jam and hollandaise), the Missouri Magic Mushroom (touting sauteed Ozark Forest mushrooms, caramelized onions and Swiss), and Dad’s Green Chili Cheeseburger (pictured below), which features crispy New Mexico Hatch chiles, pepper jack cheese and green-chile mayonnaise.

Guests looking for something beyond beef will be able to choose from lamb, bison, turkey and veggie burgers as well as a slew of sandwiches, salads and sides. Pictured here are sweet potato fries brushed with salted maple cream. As for drink offerings, look for a lengthy beer list, wines by the glass and half-bottle, cocktails, alcoholic ice cream drinks and specialty Maine Root Fountain Soda. When doors open today, the restaurant will operate seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
