This iconic NYC chain joined the local burger scene in 2012 and the long lines (we hit the shop and 32th and Chestnut) speak to its stature, at least among the drunken Drexel coeds who packed the place on St. Patty’s night. The namesake shakes are wonderful – smooth and milky, without the ice crystals you get at other fast-food joints.
The gimmick at this upscale South Jersey mall restaurant is that they pair your burger with a specific wine. Okay, we’re usually good with a craft beer or frothy milkshake, but if the waitress suggests a Shiraz with my bacon burger, I’ll give it a try
There are things to like here: A tremendous craft beer list, an intriguing menu (we didn’t have the nerve to order the crispy pig’s ear appetizer) and a burger that sounds promising: Two quarter-pound patties of ground brisket, tangy Cabot cheddar cheese, a seeded brioche roll and Neuske slab bacon.
Remember the first time you ever ate a Big Mac? All that “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, special sauce on a sesame seed bun.” It was great. But hey, your tastes have graduated from that. Your palate has refined, right?
If I am ever convicted of a capital crime and get to order one last meal before lethal injection, chances are I’ll ask for Village Whiskey. A plump burger, fries cooked in duck fat and double-barrel bourbon seem to me the perfect way to go out. And Jose Garces knows how to do it right.
