Taking its name from a village in the Town of Southampton in Suffolk County, New York, Sagaponack is a restaurant located few steps from the Flatiron. I ended up there one day after finding that they serve a surf and turf burger, a dish I never heard of before. So I went one day for lunch.
I did not go around the restaurant, but definitely, the decor sets the tone: sea and food, or I should say seafood.
I was not sure what to drink with my burger and then noticed their nice selection of cider. So, I went for a Wolffer No 139 dry white cider, that is made with 17 different varieties of apples and a small quantity of asian pear.
Then came the burger that looked fantastic: the bun was topped with a grass-fed beef patty perfectly cooked medium, bacon and some chopped lobster. It was quite big and you need to press on it to be able to take a bite, the lobster releasing some juice that I thought would make the burger soggy. But it was fine and the first bite was sublime, the lobster and the meat patty pairing well together. This is for sure a decadent dish that would satisfy the burgers and lobster lovers.
With the burger was a salad as well as some very good fries that were crispy on the outside and well cooked inside.
I admit that this was a great dish and I would definitely go back to Sagaponack to try some other dishes. If you love lobster, I recommend this dish for sure.
Enjoy (I did)!
