After munching on an Amy’s Bread low-fat applesauce doughnut (pictured in the Freewheelin’ Donut), Blognut is still hungry. We decide to finally try the much-anticipated Corner Bistro hamburger.
Cheap beer, lots of meat, and old-school tavern charm makes the Corner Bistro a popular hangout with late-night, drunken burger seekers, so it’s best to go early. At 2:30 on Sunday afternoon we have no problem getting a booth in the back room. Seeing no doughnuts on the short menu, we order a cheeseburger with French fries. We put the fries on the burger (a common Blognut practice).
We eat the burger.
Burger verdict: Thick, messy, and delicious. The only downfall being that it was a bit overcooked (we ordered it medium but probably should have gone medium-rare). Not overly complex, the Bistro burger relies on simple, All-American flavor to please its eater - a definite must-try for any burger-loving New Yorker. The fries were perfectly crisp and good as well.
