The Great NYC Burger Tour: Prologue


Eons ago, when the very sky was but a thought and the astral plane black, enveloping, God gave shape to the first cheeseburger – a succulent beef patty housed in a toasted bun and garnished with one of a variety of cheeses. “Chaisse-Bergord,” He called it, after his favorite Supernova. Like thunderbolts he thrust on this form lettuce, tomato, onions, and ketchup, rendering His creation a portable slice of heaven. (He had recently invented portability, too.) Fries and a coke? Yea, a backup choir of angels.


Not content to merely bestow upon man, another of His creations, the cheeseburger to which He had so awesomely given life, God deigned His most favorite culinary delight in the shape of recipes and oral traditions diffused over endless earth. No burger shaped by man, ignorant of the cosmic dance above, would match His for vitality and joy; for splendor and juiciness. Should one by chance replicate that which was birthed in the Heavens, well… that was not going to happen. No, man could not conjure such a burger.


The search for that most perfect of burgers begins anon…

      Nice! (What is banh mi?) I think you could put it on Made A Blog, you just need to focus on what music you were listening to or thinking about at each restaurant. I always imagine your favorite band, VW, as going with a tender veal chop and 2000 Sauvignon blanc.

      Mimi, if you havent done it yet, I just went to this amazing new place that opened up…its called Baoguette on 26th and Lex. I would definitely include it in your adventure, their Banh Mi’s are exquisite. It has a kind of modern twist on the sandwiches too, without compromising the integrity of the sandwiches themselves.

    Sonic recently opened in Rio Grande ( Rye-O- Grand if you live in SJ) and I have to say the missus and I enjoyed a very pleasurable drive-up experience. The double cheeseburger definitely gives the big 2 ( McD,BK and Wendy’s) a run for their money. However, for the $ Fud’s is hard to beat.

  3. Mimi Says:

    Love the Tom Cat Bakery bread they use at Baoguette! I used to live around their first location. It’s on my slightly outdated banh mi map:
