The Meat: Pat LaFrieda
The Cheese: Choice of Cheese
The Bun: Varies depending on the type of burger
Flip Tip: Try the bargain combo packages w/ fries and drinks included
At BLT burger, the turkey burger as well as the signature "BLT" impressed. The turkey burger was moist and spiced and hugged by a sweet onion brioche. It is no surprise that Laurent Toulouse would craft a smart turkey burger sandwich -- that has been critically acclaimed by food critics across the country. The BLT was also full of flavor. The meat was good: thick, juicy, and a nice medium-rare. The bready bun and thick serving of L&T, however, obscured its flavor. While one would expect a quality meat-centric burger experience from Laurent Tourondel, the saucy execution was more on par with Shake Shack.
The only problem here is that you have to pay extra for your fries, cronions, and slaw. And, the burgers, though not inexpensive, have a mass- produced, factory line flavor. I left the restaurant begging the question: Why didn’t I just go down to the West Village?
