Burgers of all kinds. Lamb, pork, beef it’s all fair game. Anything that’s circular and served in a bun goes in here.

Double Eagle, Cost and Taste

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse (1221 6th ave, at 49th St., New York, NY) is where bankers and media moguls go for business lunches and where they take their clients for dinner. The menu is headlined by $50 steaks, lobsters and expensive wine. I was there for the burger. They just began selling it a [...]

Five Guys is Greasy Good

I usually shy away from chain joints, but everyone gets kind of giddy when they mention Five Guys (locations everywhere, FG6, 36 West 48th Street). They always flash a “should we split a Toblerone?

Carbs on Carbs: Japanese Rice Burger

Sunrise Mart (494 Broome St.), is a small Japanese market offering groceries, sushi, and prepared lunches. They have bento boxes and onigiri, sushi and curry – and now, a rice “burger” ($8.49 with fries). [...]

An Open Letter to Bacon

Dearest Bacon, Where do I begin? You’ve gotten so popular these days. Well, you and your twin brother, Pork Belly. Why does he get all the fancy gigs? It seems like every upscale joint in town is dropping him on the menu. Why does he get all the fame? I know it upsets you so, [...]
