We had a plan to go to the Whitney Museum Biennial exhibit but I admit that I was more thrilled about what was coming next: the brunch at Untitled, the restaurant on the side of the Museum (you do not need to go into the museum to go there). I cannot believe it has been two years that we went there and I was looking forward to eating two things: the burger and the cookie and milk that Chef Suzanne Cupps proposes.
Yes, the Cabbot Cheddar burger is fantastic: tasty and juicy, like a piece of art. Squeezed in a brioche bun, the meat patty is topped with a caramelized onion aioli. But if you are vegetarian, you can opt for the Untitled veggie burger (Jodi asked without the bun) that is made with shiitake mushrooms, spring greens and cheddar (I admit that I did not try it as I was totally focused on my dish). Only thing is that I was surprised that the burger does not come with any sides: it came with pickled vegetables, as if it was a way to made the dish healthy. So we tried their salt and vinegar potatoes that I thought would be like chips, but it was like crushed potatoes. This was good, but I prefer fries or onion rings with a burger.
They offer also for brunch a nice selection of wine and cocktails, as well as juices like the blood orange soda or the lemon and mint soda.
Last was dessert: the must have is the triple chocolate chunk cookie and milk. I simply love it: the cookie is slightly warm, slightly crispy and salty, chewy, with a nice amount of chocolate in it, the milk helping neutralize its sweetness nicely. This is in my top 5 cookies and I just wish they were giving two...
So it was a great lunch in a nice atmosphere and with a very good service. Know that Untitled is a non tipping restaurant so don’t be too scared when you see the prices!
Enjoy (I did)!
