It's a bummer not to have come of age during simpler times that spawned films like Grease, when hair gel n' hot rods ruled the school, and girls handled being pregnant like absolute champs -- go Rizzo! Don't fret: get all the grease you can handle, at Super Duper.
From the dude behind Beretta, Starbelly, and Delarosa comes SD, a super-casual, 50s era burger n' shake shack that's nostalgically done up with retro-patterned grey/yellow walls, white n' black checkered tile floors, hanging metal pendant fixtures, a high communal table and a small, heat lamp-having patio for keeping a close eye on your deuce coupe/Razor scooter. In addition to (cheap) burgers that're marinated in their own fat, cooked atop a chrome flat-top grill, and served on classic American buns with all the usual fixins (including a secret sauce that "may or may not involve cognac"), there's Strauss soft-serve ice cream that you can get topped with lemon-sugar marinated strawberries, crumbled bacon/chocolate chip cookie, or the cognac sauce you may or may not have saved for later due to the possibility of it containing Cognac. Beverage-wise, they're keeping it simple: any of the aforementioned flavors can be whipped up into a shake, plus on tap'll be Scrimshaw and Racer 5, as well as Chardonnay and a cab/Merlot blend, with essence of loganberries, cocoa, and car fresheners shaped like crowns.
If you don't want alcohol or liquid ice cream, you're stupid, and your options are limited to housemade ice tea, lemonade, and soda pop -- so, sorry Rizzo, but that's all you get.
