In September, we told you that Beacon Hill pizza and sandwich shop The Federal would close and be re-concepted under the Boston Nightlife Ventures Group. Turns out, BNV revamped the space into a burger joint, dubbed “Griddler’s Burgers & Dogs,” that soft opens tonight. The hope here, it seems, is that wallet-friendly burgers, hot dogs, and milkshakes will court more lunchtime and post-work traffic from the MGH crowd than The Federal did.

The standard burgers here are $4, and come on a soft potato roll with lettuce, tomato and “special sauce.” Specialty versions, like the Breakfast Griddler (topped with a fried egg, bacon, and waffle fries) and the BBQ Griddler (topped with barbecue sauce, Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and onion rings) are only a buck more.

There’s also a selection of loaded hot dogs (including a kraut-topped Reuben Dog and a chowder and fried clam-topped Chowder Dog) and great-sounding shakes in flavors like apple pie, peanut butter, Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes. Scope out the entire menu below.
