Bon sang! I probably just found one of the best burgers in town! Well, I would not specifically say that I found it: we saw it on the 5 Best Restaurants, a TV show on the food network that will make you salivate. They cover any kind of food: burgers, pizza, ice cream...The first episode we saw was on burgers and, ranking number 2, was Sebastian's Steakhouse burger.
This burger is an all beef 6oz patty made with quality meat coming from the New Jersey steakhouse, Sebastian's, of one of the owners, Dean Piccolo (beef neck dry-aged for 30 days, 65% top grade beef and 10% fat that is around the kidneys). It is cooked in a cast iron pan so the fat would not drip out and would remain there for the pleasure of the diners. The patty sits on a white bun and is topped with American cheese and caramelized onions. Temperature wise, they recommend it medium and will not even ask you if it is fine for you (I guess you can tell them if you want a different temperature as they clearly mention it on the menu.
The burger is served with fries and a pickle. Looking at the burger, you may not think it looks exceptional, but the first bite will make you think you are in heaven: you definitely taste the meat that is juicy and has a nice char that gives a little crunchiness to the the burger. The only regret I had was that I did not get more as I could have eaten a second one, transported by the excitement to eat such a flavorful burger.
I should mention that it is a small place, so reservation might be necessary...The Brindle Room has for sure one of the best burgers in town. They propose only one burger on their menu and I can tell you that it is worth paying $15. Would I go back? Hell yeah!
Enjoy (I sure did)!
