Today Zagat released their results of the NYC Smackdown: Old School vs. New School. B&B was put up against long standing favorite Corner Bistro in a head to head burger test and came up the winner.
In 2009, Josh Capon of Lure Fishbar took home the People’s Choice at the New York City Wine and Food Festival’s Burger Bash. It was quite a shocker for the burger obsessed for a seafood joint to win a meat contest. He took his winning “Bash Style Burger” recipe with him when he opened Burger and Barrel in 2010. We were skeptical because “caramelized onion and bacon jam” and “special sauce” sounds fancy, but it’s tasty. It arrives at the table with said jam, and lots of cheese and pickles, on a perfect brioche bun. Though, we could have done without the onion rings affixed to the top.
WINNER: New School!
Even though we love Corner Bistro in the middle of the night, in the light of day the burgers lose a little bit of yum factor. The meat isn’t really seasoned, and they churn those babies out of the extra tiny kitchen so fast they don’t really pay attention to doneness. At Burger and Barrel, the patty had a super tasty crust on it (maybe from a hot griddle or skillet?) and everything on top of it was extra flavorful. Especially that onion and bacon jam we scoffed at. [Zagat]
