The Goomba is b.good's latest rotating seasonal option, having just hit the menu a few days back. Drawing inspiration from Nintendo, it features a mix of cremini, shiitake, oyster and Portobello mushrooms, as well as some smoked Gouda. It will likely stick around until mid-July, when the next seasonal special comes around.

JM Curley's new Secret Burger is so secret that it's not even printed on the menu. Made in limited quantities - there's only four per night - it piles on a 5 oz. patty, fiddlehead tomme cheese, a fried egg and North Country bacon, all atop an in-house, fried fresh-to-order organic donut. The finished product is drizzled with a Vermont maple glaze.
