Naked means clean


Brandon Gorgies and Goran Dimic have added a new location for their Naked Burger Kitchen + Craft Bar in Rochester Hills after opening their flagship restaurant in Clinton Township in 2019. And what’s with the name “Naked Burger”? Gorgies explains that in this case, the word naked means clean. “There wasn’t really anyone else doing this and we weren’t thrilled with the burger scene. Our hamburger is better quality, from grass fed, dry-aged Piedmontese beef,” said Gorgies. The menu offers eight signature burgers including the “Big Tex” with smoked gouda, slaw, onion crisp, bacon, jalapeño and BBQ sauce on a pretzel bun, and “The Hangover” with aged white cheddar, caramelized onion, candied bacon, avocado, sunny side up egg, tomato jam and garlic aioli. There are also two choices of chicken sandwiches, a vegetarian ‘shroom burger and an Atlantic cod sandwich. Inside, Gorgies and Dimic have completely transformed the space, which was formerly the home of Rochester Taproom, with industrial pendant lighting and modern artwork. A large rectangular bar with white quartz countertops seats 24, while the bartenders are kept busy serving up an extensive list of handcrafted cocktails, local and domestic beers and a surprising selection of fine wines. An Italian bottle of Podere la Vigna for $130 will certainly pair well with any gourmet burger on the menu! 6870 N. Rochester Road, Rochester Hills  nakedburgerdetroit.com
