In his latest New York City restaurant review, Ed Levine reviews the burger from Daddy-O. He says:
I ordered my cheddar burger as always medium-rare. Alas, there wasn't a hint of pink to be found, much less red. It still tasted reasonably juicy and moist and beefy, but there was no burger greatness to be found, at least in our burger. The tater tots that came with the burger were crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, just as they should be.
Check out the autopsy shot after the jump.
Near the end of the meal we noticed that other tables' burgers seemed to be cooked medium rare, hopefully making our overcooked burger an anomaly since Daddy-O is know as having one of the best burgers in the city. (If you're wondering, we ate at Daddy-O before the discussion about sending back overcooked burgers. We'll know better next time!)
