The Dish: Breslin’s Lamb Burger
What: Chargrilled lamb burger with feta, cumin mayo, and thrice-cooked chips. Where: The Breslin at the Ace Hotel. Ideal meal: When you’re in the mood to rub shoulders with scenesters—literally, it’s really crowded around dinner time. Because: Chef April Bloomfield did marvelous things at The Spotted Pig. And if you don’t love (or are at least fond of) that burger, you’re wrong. Tastes like: Tender lamb patty, slightly charred on the outside, atop a soft bun with the most wonderful/intriguing cumin mayo addition. The fries are really, really amazing. You won’t be able to leave spares on the plate. Bottom line: It’s a pricey burger at $17, but the same as S.P.’s version. Worth the indulgence.
