Topped with Lincolnshire cheddar and a perfectly fried egg, Harry's Bistro Burger at Abbey Burger Bistro is a decadent delight. Smothered with crab dip and topped with cheddar and bacon, the Baltimore Burger ratchets up the sinfulness. But for fans of this tucked-away Federal Hill gem, Abbey's build-a-burger checklist is like a Lego store for the mouth. General manager John Taylor says customers, beginning with a basic $9.50 burger, itemize their burger bill into the high $20s. A recent diner added on four cheeses and crabmeat, for starters. Bread choices include pretzel rolls, and toppings include spicy creme fraiche.
