"Breslin Burger" - Lobby Bar @ the Ace Hotel
The Meat: Pat LaFrieda
The Cheese: English cheddar
The Bun: Brioche
A cousin of Spotted Pig's acclaimed (and to-be-tasted) roquefort creation, the Breslin burger is modest, yet delicious. Served in the Ace Hotel's comfy Lobby Bar, one might find him or herself sampling this burger amidst a hodgepodge of Columbia students studying for finals, stranded single ladies searching for some company, and "hip" businessmen swapping beers and cheer. The burger itself is juicy, complemented by a light serving of bacon and white cheddar, and is served with crisp, thick belgian-style frites. Light and casual, this burger is the perfect after-work refreshment. For any beer drinkers out there, order up a can of Pork Slap Pale Ale and call it a day.
