The hamburger at The Spotted Pig
First let's start with bun which is made by Blue Ribbon Bakery. A soft and rich buttery bun that melts in your mouth but doesn’t fall apart or get to soggy. Next of course is the meat which when you order medium rare that is how it comes. The meat is rich and seasoned perfectly the right ratio of fat to meat so it is succulent and juicy. Then the hamburger topped with Roquefort cheese. The rich savory cheese brings to life the hamburger and makes it a completely blissful experience. The hamburger also is accompanied with the thinnest crisp shoestring fries that have been fried with thin slivers of garlic and rosemary. It just does not get better.
The Spotted Pig has a fantastic wine list by the way by the way and I enjoyed the Tocai Friuliano by Bastianich which they pour by the glass with my hamburger.
Next time you find your self craving a hamburger or a little hungover stop by The Pig, sit at the bar and enjoy the perfect burger.
