Turns out, restaurant owners David Flom and Matt Moore take landscaping as seriously as they take their famous burgers. They tapped the team from Anne Roberts Gardens to create a living garden wall, and the result is a vibrant display of more than 3,000 plants. Spider plants, begonias, wild petunias, and more create a downtown jungle of sorts, and believe us: There’s no prettier place to snack on Angus sliders.
There may be a wait, so call ahead to reserve your spot. That’s right: This secret garden takes reservations.
