The Counter Custom Burgers, a build-your-own-burger restaurant, has opened its first location in North Miami-Dade in the Town Center Aventura, at 18717 Biscayne Blvd, Aventura.

The Counter said it “embraces burgers with a conscience,” using naturally raised, hormone and antibiotic-free Angus beef, grass-fed organic bison, all-natural chicken and turkey, and a house-made vegan/veggie burger for their burger and salad style burger bowls. Last year, the company also introduced a gluten-free menu.

To accompany their burgers, diners can choose a side of shoestring fries, sweet potato fries or parmesan fries as well as deviled eggs, housemade chili, dill pickle chips, or crispy onion strings, the Counter said.

Founded in 2003, the Culver City, Calif.-based brand has more than 30 locations, including two others in Florida — one at Miami International Airport and one in Naples.

Friends and colleagues have described memories of okra that was sulfurous and slimy and yet left a cottony feeling on their tongues and gums. (This is no coincidence: The okra plant is related to the cotton plant.)
