One year. One hundred burgers. A quest that started out as a hobby, became an obsession, and has slowly transformed into a lifestyle. How much burger is too much burger? If there is such a thing, we'll let you know.

Minetta Tavern

Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger
The Meat: Chuck, skirt, short rib, brisket, and 45-day dry-aged ribeye
The Cheese: None
The Bun: Sesame Seed
Flip Tip: The Black Label Burger.

One month later after my visit to Minetta Tavern, the sweet, oniony taste of their legendary Black Label Burger (26$) can be conjured in my mouth almost instantly. Its highly distinctive, rich-in-sodium-high-in-deliciousness makes it fit for King Arthur's table (oops it's french, King Louis'). Stacked between two brioche buns, this meat (chuck, skirt, short rib, brisket plus 45 day dry aged ribeye), caramelized onions, cigarette fries (piled high) combo satisfies all burger receptors at first chomp. Hang on for the next few and the butter laced gout coma settles in. Nurse your new medical condition with a dark-and-stormy and cancel any planned evening activities.

Extra juice:
If dry-aged steak isn't your thing, try the Minetta Burger, a more conventional but seriously delicious [read: cheesy] Minetta creation.
