Last night my husband was craving a burger and suggested TGIFridays or Santa Fe Steakhouse, both in our neighborhood. It is my deeply held belief that eating in a chain restaurant anywhere within the five boroughs of New York City is a sin. I parried with the suggestion that we try Corner Bistro, famed as the burger that Danny Meyer wanted to emulate at the Shake Shack. Fortunately, I’d shared the heavenly Shake Shack experience with him so he was game.
Yum, yum, yum. The burger, the fries, both delish. I must confess that I think Shake Shack is better, but maybe I had one too many lunches there this summer. But Corner Bistro is good and worth the wait to get a seat. If you are not in the mood for a burger, go somewhere else. The menu consists of burgers, a chicken sandwich, BLT, grilled cheese and bacon, and chili. I think the only reason chili is on the menu is so they can make chili burgers. It’s that kind of place.
