BLT Burger

>> Friday, October 24, 2008

I had the pleasure of venturing to another BLT location, this past Wednesday for my birthday. I wanted to go someplace a little low key, but still a bit more upscale (an oxymoron I know.) As you remember a while back I wrote about BLT Prime and talked of its ambiance and delicious bread puffs. This experience was just as wonderful, but on a different scale.

BLT Burger is in my neighborhood and I pass it often. It's unpretentious and just as inviting as any other little shop that lines the lower part of 6th avenue. Once you walk in you feel as if you been transported to a little diner, with a bar to the right and booths and tables to the back.

We are seated promptly and begin to look at the menu, and after only 2 minutes of looking, I know exactly what I want (Lex, who was kind enough to take me to dinner, got the same thing.) We ordered typical burger joint food, with an upscale culinary twist:

  • American Kobe Burger - American Wagyu

  • Vidalia Onion Rings

We both got our burgers medium rare, mine with monteray jack cheese, bacon, mayo (which I dont really even like, but I felt the need), ketchup, mustard and red onion, and Lex's with the whole sheband, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickles, mayo, ketchup, mustard, bacon, and american cheese.

From the moment that burger hit my lips, it slowly melted away until the final bite. Cooked to perfect with the ultimate balance of fat and meat. The onion rings, were perfectly breaded and fried, a little hot at first, but once we could calm down and let them cool down, they were perfect. Uh, utter perfection.

Finished off with a pumpkin beer, it was the perfect birthday dinner.

Thanks to everyone for the best birthday week ever!!
