39 Rue de Jean VS Poe’s Tavern

Upscale: 39 Rue de Jean
Down-home: Poe’s Tavern

Perfect patties result when the beef is ground in-house (allowing customers to order their desired doneness). At 39 Rue de Jean, the Brasserie Burger—10 ounces of prime beef with Roquefort, Gruyère, or cheddar—is a dressed-up bistro plate that pairs nicely with a glass of wine. If you’re more the beer and burger type, Poe’s delivers its half-pounder with a slew of topping options, from pimiento or sweet-pepper goat cheese to a crab cake or fried egg. 39 Rue de Jean: 39 John St., (843) 722-8881, www.39ruedejean.com; Poe’s Tavern: 2210 Middle St., Sullivan’s Island, (843) 883-0083, www.poestavern.com
