#BFJMealsonHeels by @bostonfoodjournal is a creative, ongoing art series that combines Brittany’s love of food with her love of fashion and style. 

Try to name a more iconic burger joint in Boston. You can’t.

Boston Burger Company is a staple here in the city. With four locations and a massive menu boasting over-the-top burgers, shakes and fries, I knew it was the perfect concept for my next #BFJMealsonHeels photoshoot.

And why wouldn’t it be? Any venue that states part of their mission is to “allow ourselves to have fun and get crazy in the kitchen, creating the most outrageous, Instagrammable meals possible,” is a brand that is in align with Meals on Heels and the Boston Food Journal.

With testimonials from the likes of Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives), Michael Symon (Iron Chef), and Rachel Ray (The Rachel Ray Show) it’s safe to say Boston Burger Company is making quite the impression not just regionally but globally as well!

When looking through their menu, I knew I wanted to photograph a burger that was STACKED, because the more height the better (especially because we shoot eye-level). So, after much deliberation, I decided to order the Killer Bee, a burger loaded with beer-battered onion rings, bacon, honey BBQ sauce and American cheese. I decided to pair the burger with a simple, lace-up, light brown stiletto because I wanted the shoe to accentuate the elements and textures of the burger.

I am so obsessed with this result and can say confidently that the Killer Bee did not disappoint, from both a visual perspective and a taste perspective (yes, we eat the food after we shoot, pending no ‘mistakes’ are made, because each heel is always brand new).

If you haven’t been to Boston Burger yet, this is your sign to do so. And make sure you’re hungry, because you can’t get one of their burgers without also trying their iconic #FreakFrappes (the Oreo is my favorite). Do it and thank me later.

What should I balance next?
