Ravenous is the new burger concept from Chef Michael Corvino, twice nominated in the Best Chef: Midwest category of the prestigious James Beard Foundation Awards.
Ravenous is born out of Corvino Supper Club & Tasting Room in the Crossroads district of Kansas City. The restaurant served a cheeseburger on its late-night menu, which eventually became part of the dinner menu because of its popularity.
The Ravenous cheeseburger is a diner-style burger with two smashed patties seared on a griddle to lend a crispy-edged finish. The house-made buns have a soft texture, and the patties get topped with sour pickles, a bitey aioli made with grated garlic and lemon, charred onions, and melted Muenster cheese.
The menu also features the Big Mike, a burger topped with American cheese and iceberg lettuce, a seared mushroom sandwich, tater tots, broccoli salad, malts, and fried pies.
