Surf & Turf Burger at Sawyer Park

Seafood burger: The surf & turf burger ($9.50) at Sawyer Park Sports Bar (2412 Washington, 713-863-9350) is one of those dishes that make you wonder: Why didn't anyone think of this before? The popular steak-and-lobster combination is transformed here, with a half-inch patty topped with an aioli-based shrimp-and-crab slaw. No tomatoes, lettuce or pickles are served with the burger, and they won't be missed, because the slaw makes it all so juicy. On Sundays the burgers are smoked, making them even tastier with the seafood slaw.
