The Squeaky Bean is about to get a new executive chef, Chris MacGillivray, who worked at the LoDo Bean under opening chef Max MacKissock; MacGillivray will be back to take over on May 20. Current chef Theo Adley's last day will be on May 16; he's given the Bean two years — and a great burger that was introduced last May, and immediately earned raves. Including this from Cynthia:
PLEASE tell me this will not change the cheeseburger. Please.
Some readers have complained that we have burgers on the brain these days, but the Squeaky Bean burger is hard to forget. Have you tried it? How do you think it compares to other burgers in town?
