What you’re getting: The Flatiron Burger
Around since the early ‘90s, the Flatiron has weathered a lot: management changes, chef changes, wholesale menu changes, and an ever-shifting culinary landscape in a town that thrives on, well, change. Throughout it all, diners could always count on warm hospitality, top-notch service, and some of the city’s tastiest burgers. There’s an elegant edge to a Flatiron Burger, from the gourmet patty and buttery, toasted, bakery-fresh bun to a proprietary sauce boasting a hint of, what’s that... ancho? These are big, drippy, satisfying burgers, pulled from the flames at just the right moment.
What you’re getting: The Rad Shroom Burger
Don’t listen to the folks who steer you toward the Thurmanator Burger, which is more of a feat of strength than a meal. That beast is a mountain of ground beef -- a pound and a half, to be exact -- not to mention another half-pound of bacon, ham, cheese, mushrooms, and... are those banana peppers? No, if you do score a seat at this legendary German Village pub, don’t squander it on a dare. Instead, order something sensible like the Rad Shroom Burger, an oozing banquet of beef, mushrooms, and horseradish cheese that you’ll still struggle to finish before fatigue sets in.
