Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Dine on extraordinary fare with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of exotic burgers and drinks at Black Market in Clinton Township.
Black Market caters to the most adventurous of eaters with its exotic burgers and unique bargain-and-barter paying style. In addition to unusual burger selections such as ostrich, alpaca, and African lion, Black Market also makes patties from the rare and mystical cow. Squash down hunger with the Mondo-Mini burger, a leaning tower of a quarter pound each of bacon, ham, turkey, and melted cheese, with a half-pound of beef and three slices of grilled texas toast acting as an anchor ($10.99). The Black Market kitchen also slings out pizzas, sandwiches, and a full slab of slow-cooked ribs ($12.99 full slab), best washed down with libations from the full bar.
Black Market’s unique dining experience relies on the "Market," a stock ticker that gives the market price on exotic meats through random deals all day. Wily diners can also try their hands at bargaining for off-menu pricing with Black Market's friendly but cutthroat crew of servers. Contrary to its name, Black Market’s exotic proteins are farm-raised and regulated by the FDA.
The Black Market
At The Black Market, the day's prices slither across a sprawling stock ticker on the wall. But the restaurant's hardwood floors aren't filled with traders, they're filled with diners hoping to catch a discount on a meal or a few drinks. Prices change in accordance with popularity, and the wait staff is trained to haggle if guests have an itch to barter. Families can sink teeth into signature barbecue-chicken sandwiches or burgers with specialty exotic meats, including kangaroo, alpaca, yak, and lion. The late-night crowd packs the floor during DJ sets, much like night traders at the stock exchange.
