I've been a little burger crazy lately and therefore doing a little research to figure out what the best burger in the East Village is. I had the burger at Blk Mrkt a few weeks back and it was pretty awesome! I have yet to try the burger at Royale but I'm hoping to try it out soon. I've heard mixed things, but mostly positive. After being out way too late and way too many drinks the night before, I was in serious need of a juicy and delicious burger.
I found it at Brindle Room. I had been there once before for their duck confit poutine but I can't say that it was good enough to get me back there so soon. But that morning I read an article saying that the burger at Brindle Room was neck in neck with Back Forty as runner up for best burger in the EV. Boy they were right! It was delicious! Super juicy and crazy flavourful! I think it's WAY better than Back Forty. The chef explained to us that his partner ages the beef longer than usual and I think there's salt added to it or something, it's almost crispy yet extremely juicy on the inside. They serve it with caramelized onions on it and I added basic all american cheese to it (aka the hangover special) and boy did it ever do the trick! We gobbled it up and fought over the last bit even! We also tried the french toast, which was covered with caramelized bananas and nutella. Also delicious even thought sweets for breakfast isn't my thing. I'm looking forward to going back to try the shrimp and grits!
