Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Take a picture with your stomach cam with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a burger or veggie burger, tater tots, and a large fountain soda at Bay Burger (up to a $12.25 value), located in Sag Harbor.
Featured on The Martha Stewart Show, in Vanity Fair, and named one of the Best Burgers on Long Island by Newsday, Bay Burger serves up scrumptious sandwiches built from freshly ground patties, buns baked from scratch daily, and, whenever possible, produce picked from the organic farm growing right next to the restaurant. Amid a modern mellow décor, customers can order at the butcher-block counter, then relax in the dining room or on the patio as their beefy (a $7 value) or veggie (a $7.50 value) Bay Burger is swiftly prepared and delivered to the table. A third-pound formation of whole shoulder ground beef is grilled to order and bunned beneath american, swiss, cheddar, or blue cheese, and herbivorous hungers are served a tasty mélange of black beans, brown rice, and roasted vegetables. Tater tots (a $2.75 value) and a large fountain soda (a $2 value) chaperone each burger into the belly like a parent chaperoning a tuxedoed potato to the prom.
Although it's easy to describe what makes Bay Burger great—grade-A beef, house-baked buns sprinkled with kosher salt—it's best to watch the mouthwatering video of how it all gets made. You'll also see fresh lobster rolls, BLTs, and all-natural ice cream in the footage, all of which helped the eatery earn a spot on Thrillist's list of the top 5 burger joints in the Hamptons.
