This sixth outpost from the San Francisco-based company co-founded by Josh Spiegelman and Lynn Gorfinkle will open Monday, Feb. 11, at City Center Bishop Ranch.

Roam specializes in “pasture-to-plate” burgers of grass-fed beef, all-natural bison, free-range turkey or organic veggies on buns from Pacific Coast Bakery. New on the menu for the San Ramon launch is a pasture-raised lamb burger sourced from Northern California’s Cascade Creek Lamb. There’s also a winter burger topped with quince spread, brie and applewood-smoked bacon.

Customization options at Roam go way beyond the basics to include gruyere, oil-and-vinegar slaw, cremini mushrooms, free-range eggs — even truffle parmesan fries. Sauces (a dozen), butter lettuce, tomatoes, onion and house-made pickles come free.

Russet and sweet potato fries and zucchini-onion haystacks are offered as sides.

Artisan sodas in unusual flavors (caramelized pineapple, prickly pear) are crafted in-house; and the shakes are made with organic Straus Family ice cream. The seasonal drink is a blood orange white wine spritzer.

Roam first expanded outside San Francisco, where there are two locations, to Lafayette in 2013. Other locations are in San Mateo and uptown Oakland.

Details: Roam in San Ramon will serve from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 6000 Bollinger Canyon Road.
