Mr Murdochs

Cheeseburger, vegetarian or pulled pork | $23 | Mr Murdoch’s Rooftop Tavern, 16 Fort Lane

We love Mr Murdoch’s for the chill vibes their rooftop hangout provides, and their tasty burgers make it just that much better. We recommend the pulled pork cheeseburger with smoked chipotle slaw. If you’d rather skip the meat the grilled eggplant burger with mozzarella and salad greens is extra yummy. All burgers come with fries.
