Josh Ozersky on the past, the present and the future


As part of Eater's Burger week (and happy National Burger Month to everyone) they got him to write about the past, the present and the future of the burger. Personally I think he gets it 100% wrong when he attributes the burger's invention to White Castle. A) White Castle makes 'sliders' not hamburgers. B) The Louis' Lunch story makes much more sense to me. and C) I'm an East-coast sort of guy.

I'm also not so certain I agree with him about the 'modern burger era' starting with the db Burger - but I'm going to have to do some more research before I become certain. And then finally his obsession with the squishy white bun has got to go!
