City Burger, which didn’t exactly win over burger lovers when it first opened, has started serving the Pat La Frieda “Black Label” burger that we’ve been anticipating since August. After a ’bag reader furtively ordered it off the menu yesterday, a Midtown Lunch reader stops in today and offers a first report (as well as a photo!).
From a cheeseburger to cheeseburger comparison perspective, this is definitely worth trying. Yes it’s an expensive [$13] take-out burger but it tastes different. I can’t tell you if it lives up to this black label hype, but it definitely has a completely different taste. If you’re really into trying the various burgers in this city, you owe it to yourself to at least try this one.
So City Burger may yet succeed in winning the hearts and stomachs of the city’s burgerphiles. But will this thing generate as much hype as the Irving Mill monster?
