Living on Hanover Square, went to Ei8htStone (named for its address on Stone Street) for the first time last week and was very pleasantly surprised. It is in the new Doubletree Hotel, which is not somewhere I'd normally go. Fairly varied menu, but as a barometer for any new restaurant that serves them, I order a burger to see how the place measures up on the burger meter. Ordered a medium rare burger and, guess what? It came exactly as ordered. Bit off some of the meat before getting my hands around it and it was extremely tasty. Nice char, great beef flavor. Very impressive. With no hesitation, this is the best burger on Stone Street, albeit it the other side of Stone (past Broad). Started with the beet and goat cheese salad, and that also was terrific. Nice wine list, fairly typically priced for the area. I would recommend locals get out and try this place at nights and on the weekends. You won't be disappointed. I've lived in this area for 20+ years and this is the best burger I've had since being down here. Bar none (no pun intended). Try it.
