Finally in Manhattan after trying their best to make Brooklyn forget about kale, this narrow UES sleeve is slinging ridiculous mix 'n match burgers. Just grab a menu, a wax pencil, and your depraved imagination, then conjure up a ridiculously awesome meat + covering concoction, from a beef burger with mozzarella sticks on it, to shrimp burgers topped with... more shrimp.
Stuffed into a sliced donut and topped with a fried egg plus crumbled bacon, you can roll the dice and hope you show up when this guy's a special, or you can call at least a day ahead and ask them to have one ready for you when you step in.
This here is their very juicy looking lamb burger topped with caramelized onions and Swiss. [Ed note: see that tiny pocket of red in the middle? It burst and hit our photographer in the face with burger juice as he was photographing. It was awesome.]
Time to get nuts: beef patty, cheddar, guac, frizzled onions & sweet pickles.
Time to get even nuts-er: pepperjack, portobello, jalapeno & mozzarella sticks.
Nuts Part 3: The Birth of the Shrimp Burger. Ground shrimp pushed into patty form, then topped with fried buffalo shrimp. Suck it, Sizzler.
Scholars agree that the first Thanksgiving would have been 1000% more awesome if it had this deep-fried corn.
They'll also be rocking non-donut special burgers, including this joint -- two patties, four waffles, lots of syrup. 1663 First Ave, btwn 86th and 87th St; Upper East Side; 646.368.1134; TheBurgerBistro.com
