Classic Dorrian's Cheeseburger

Still A Cornerstone Burger


…I found this burger had great texture—I love a loose interior crumble and exterior caramelization—but do prefer a bit more of those lovely warm, clear beef juices running down my chin and slowly disintegrating the integrity of the bottom bun…. [Full Post]

Gastropub Is Spot-On


…A worthy addition to the burger pantheon of this fine and finicky city, the clincher being the punchy and salty Roquefort (and my addition of some kicky mustard) wonderfully complimenting the premium ground beef’s natural sweetness…. [Full Post]

Am I Blue?


…The burger is decent, nothing more. Plenty juicy, but lacking in any real identifiable flavor. I more “felt” the patties in my mouth as I chewed them than tasted them, lucky to have all those condiments and melted cheese slices to keep my taste buds occupied…. [Full Post]

“…And even though I am admittedly a recent convert to enjoy having a warm runny egg yolk over any number of foods, even here, the egg was not the extracurricular afterthought I’ve accused it of becoming on many a cooking show; the yolks’ silkiness tethered the acidity of the pickled, crispy, julienned vegetables, so every bite finished harmoniously….” [Full Post]




Stop By Go Burger


…My burger was very, very good, with a tasty juicy interior with a crumbly exterior with a respectable amount of crispiness on its edges. The warm, just slightly-tasted bun was airy and held up well under the burger’s clear-running liquid, with cool crisp lettuce and thinly sliced tomatoes supporting the sandwich nicely without overwhelming its taste or architecture….

Danny’s Burger Evolution

…Danny became a fan of the burger after two quick bites—and absolutely loved the crinkle-cut fries, which I agree don’t get the recognition they deserve—and is now more eager to be able to enjoy more of them from the Shake Shack on East 86th, just two and a half blocks from his apartment….

Happy Days


…A perfect medium burger, aromatic toasted rye, gooey swiss, and bright, hot, and flavorful jalapeños made for a pleasingly solid burger-eating experience. The meat was tasty and ran nicely clear with juices, without the toast’s crispiness being impaired. The smoky bacon complimented the pinkish beef’s natural, sweet, earthiness…. [Full post]

One For The Ages

…After the first bite, I could imagine Barbra Streisand, now, singing Memories in my head, as I, literally and nostalgically, enjoyed the burgers crumbly, tasty, tender meat and its juicy excesses….. [Full post]




For Kristen

…I needed to head to the supermarket for some 85/15 ground beef, and make a plain and simple bacon cheeseburger, medium rare, with American cheese, bacon, a slice of raw onion, a leaf of Boston lettuce, and a quick and easy burger sauce (tomato paste, mustard, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, fresh cracked pepper, and salt)….

Whole Lotta “Shake”in’ Goin’ On

…But I must also admit that every time I walk by the construction on East 86th Street, I “suffer” the excitement of their impending opening (next Thursday or Friday, according to “Hoss”, the head of construction, grateful, even, that I may know have the convenience to enjoy one of their excellent burgers (not my favorite, but “up there”) on the whimsiest of whims….

Hungover Easy

…That may explain why after not being able to decide if I wanted a bagel with lox and cream cheese or a Texas Burger (topped with fried egg) for a breakfast, after spotting a bag of something called Bagel Thins, I felt it was fortuitous that I decide to combine the two options into one hellacious idea of a meal….

A Day in the Life of Hamburger Buns

….Two were of a kind of steak burger prep, with steak sauce, raw and fried onions, and bacon. The other two had the addition of sweet and spicy elements, making a pineapple mustard from scratch, pickling raw onions in balsamic vinegar, and two slices of crispy bacon, and kicking the whole burger up with sweet relish and hot jalapeños. All four burgers sat very nicely on four toasted hamburger buns…. [Full post]
