Greetings from Carmela's Cucina,

Since I have been really busy the past few weeks with our son Teddy's wedding and then book signings in Des Moines, the men in my life took me out for a quick dinner. Our choice? The new burger place that the two Abdo brothers, Paul and John have just opened up on Excelsior in St. Louis Park. The burger was great and served with a nice side of crispy fries. I got mine topped with cheddar cheese, but Brian had the blue cheese burger and said it was fabulous. I suggest the fried onions which were caramelized perfectly and were nice and sweet. The guys ordered chocolate and strawberry malts and loved them.

The Abdo's have been running a MY BURGER in the sky way in downtown Minneapolis for a few years, but this is the first of many more to come in the suburbs. So forget all the other burger joints in town and give this one a try. I think you are really gonna like it.

I understand the fish sandwich is really good too. Mom, Carol Abdo says she likes hers double crisp. I guess I will be making a trip back in the very near future.

Buon appetito,

Carmela Tursi Hobbins
