Out with the Larry Summers burger at Harvard Square's Bartley's Burger Cottage, in with the Drew Faust burger. Both names are friendly to chefs looking for metaphor; Summers was served with honey mustard, which is both sweet--appropriate for his namesake season--and sour. Faust is less easily translated to food, but holds great potential. A few ideas:
- Burger is served with a sage reduction, in honor of Faust's Bryn Mawr, and presumably Wiccan, roots
- Faust is known at Harvard for her cost-cutting, and earned the nickname "Chainsaw Drew" when she brutally murdered one-quarter of the Radcliffe staff. (Other reports have her firing them instead.) Burger is served with extra ketchup, with one quarter chopped off.
- Burger is free, but if you ever cry out in pleasure at its taste, you are condemned to a PhD program where expectations for your thesis double each month
- A normal burger, but male diners who wish to order it must first calculate and recite the first seventeen digits of the Thue-Morse Sequence and explain the importance of the Higgs boson
