Behind the Scenes Burger Tour with Pat LaFrieda, Part 1: The Pan-Cooked Burger at Lot 2

You love Pat LaFreida; we love Pat LaFrieda (and if you don't know Pat, his new show on the Food Network, Meat Men, will make a fine introduction). He supplies stellar meat to some of the best restaurants in New York City and all around the country, and a good percentage of our favorite New York burgers start with his custom blends. So when Pat offered to take us on a burger crawl of the city to learn how some of our favorite burgers get made, the only questions were, "How many?" and, "When do we get started?" More

The Shake Smash Guy: How To Have The Ultimate Burger Experience In Downtown Brooklyn

Rather than settle for a sub-optimal burger-topping-fry combo, Serious Eats editors Carey Jones, Erin Zimmer, and I went straight into the heart of the Burger Zone (the official name for the area of downtown Brooklyn that now houses a Shake Shack, a Smashburger, and a Five Guys all within a five-minute walkable radius). Once we reached the epicenter of the three restaurants, we split up and headed out to pick up a topped burger and side of fries from each restaurant. The idea was that we'd use the different components to assemble The Ultimate Burger and Fries Combo, a high end fast-food meal so epic that it requires the use of capital letters. More

First Look: Moo Burger, a New Organic Burger Joint in Brooklyn from 'Chopped' Chef

Moo Burger's menu is a little overwhelming—the kind in 8-point font that requires at least four whole minutes of silent reading at the table. In addition to sauce options you have 14 burger options, each with six organic meat substitution options. Chicken, bison, elk, turkey, ostrich, lamb, and a seventh non-meat, the veggie. In addition to the aforementioned meats and sauces, you can add toppings like avocado, pulled pork, brisket (meat on meat!), roasted peppers, wild mushrooms, bacon, or a fried egg. And did we get to buns yet? Brioche, sourdough, whole-wheat, or pretzel. More

Brooklyn: Grass-Fed Burger Bliss at Lot 2

Sometimes I pick a place to review based on recommendations from other people. Other times I pick a place because I happen to be walking by a restaurant bearing a chalkboard sign in front that says, "BURGER WEDNESDAY." And by "other times" I mean last Wednesday when I unintentionally passed Lot 2 off the southern edge of Park Slope. I'd heard good things about Lot 2 before, but this was the first time I had ever walked by it—and on Burger Night, no less. It was meant to be. More
