For Burger Week, Eater National breaks down the "burger mystique" of Gabriel Rucker's legendary Le Pigeon burger, gathering details about its square-shaped patty, house-made condiments, and the story behind its spontaneous creation. Per Rucker, the inspiration "happened in a flash," and the recipe remains basically unchanged from its debut. "It just really took off," he says. "Sometimes you win the culinary lottery that way." Also breaking news: the burger is no longer limited to five per night. [-EN-]
