Starting Sept. 2, 2012, until I’m done, one post about my fabulous New York City 2012 vacation will post until I’ve finished sharing all the fabulousness with my readers. I have lots more on the horizon for NEB and my New York City posts need to complete before I can. I hope you have fun reading them.
During my NYC vacation, there were a few days were Feisty Foodie and I hung out together all day. One of them, she walked us to Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen. I was in the mood for a burger for lunch, and she had wanted to try this place for some time. Win-win for us both.
I went with a basic burger and fries as my choice: Schnipper’s Classic Burger. Before I get to the burger, let me tell you about those fries. They were perfect for me. Nice and crispy wonderfulness. Honestly, I enjoyed them more than the burger.
For me, I felt there burger was a little on the bland and overcooked side. I didn’t taste any seasoning in the meat and it was cooked a bit past the point of medium in my opinion. However, their special cheese blend, special sauce, and bacon were all cooked just right. I was a little worried about the addition of arugula on this burger as I’m not usually a fan of this particular lettuce type; however in this mix of ingredients, it worked.
While Schnipper’s burger isn’t on my list of “one of the best I’ve ever eaten,” it’s definitely a good choice if you’re nearby. If I find myself in NYC again with a Schnipper’s close by, I’m going in to try all the things on the menu that caught my eye I didn’t get a chance to try. Like the hot dog. Or the thick cut onion rings. And most definitely the fresh market salad that Feisty Foodie ordered that I thought was so gorgeous I wanted to do a face plant in it!
Oh my gosh. I just made myself hungry! Be the bento everyone.
