I have spent the past three hours debating on what to write about first. How do I choose when there are so many yummy things out there to explore? I decided to go with the most recent drool-worthy meal I have had and just go from there.
This is the Juicy Lucy from Whitman’s in New York’s East Village and just about the most amazing thing I have ever tasted. It is made from ground short ribs, stuffed with creamy pimento cheese, topped with caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, and pickles on a soft sesame seed bun. There are the standard fries as a side and then there is…Crack Kale. Crack Kale is highly addictive as you may have guessed from the name. It’s fresh kale that is flash fried and sprinkled with salt. I am always on the lookout for a delicious and juicy cheeseburger and I generally end up a little disappointed. But this completely exceeded my expectations and lived up to its juicy moniker! Add in an alternate to the standard fries or o rings? Love it! The service was good and the staff was very friendly. I’ll definitely be making a return trip to Whitman’s.
