Full review for The Bowery can be found here.
Summary: The Bowery burger has everything a burger connoisseur craves: quality, uniqueness and unparalleled taste.
Although the Bowery burger is known in foodie circles as a top notch gastropub burger it does not have the same kind of hype surrounding it as Umami or Rustic Canyon. This is a shame because the Bowery burger is the best burger your reviewer has tried so far. Before going to the Bowery I honestly did not think that anything could beat Rustic Canyon’s burger. Rustic Canyon is great. But the Bowery burger is amazing. I actually had an epiphany about four bites in where I realized it was the best burger I had ever eaten.
My burger consisted of a perfectly cooked medium-rare patty topped with sharp cheddar, bacon, red onion confit, grilled jalapenos, and a fried egg on a english muffin. The meat was juicy and delicious. What made the burger so great though was the play between the sweetness of the red onion confit and the heat from the grilled jalapenos all held together by the fried egg. It was a super-flavorful combination of sweet and hot. Although I was intially apprehensive about the strength of the english muffin it held together the burger together for the most part and tasted great.
The crew started the evening with a plate of gravy fries which are highly recommended. One plate was sufficient to whet the appetites of everyone for the upcoming burgers. We also tried the sweet potato fries and onion rings. I’m not a huge fan of sweet potato fries but these were better than most places we have tried. The onion rings were highlight of the sides. They were not heavy like most other onion rings. These were light but still delicious.
As I wrote in my A-Frame review I will gladly pick taste over high quality ingredients. However, at the Bowery there is no sacrifice. You get the highest quality ingredients and unparalleled taste. I can’t wait until my next visit.
