The Slider Cometh?
Mindful of other disastrous tamperings with a classic (New Coke anyone?) chef Sabrina Gidda and I are proceeding with care.
The inspiration for this blue sky burger research came from a conversation earlier this year at one of all-round NYC food expert Daniel Young's Burger Monday events. We were talking about the elements which give the humble burger its unique irresistibility. One of them, undoubtedly, is the char on the exterior of the patty. He posited that the ultimate burger is the double, with four sides of char.
Given that our chunky 9oz Draft House Burger takes 14 minutes to cook to medium thereby slowing service on a crazy Saturday, we wondered whether two might be better than one. See picture above.
The experimentation continues. Thoughts welcome, people.
