Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American fare and drinks at Burger Burger in the Financial District.
The menu at Burger Burger describes a cornucopia of more than 15 specialty hamburgers laid upon brioche or wheat rolls and Nathan's hotdogs. The Berta burger greets the palate with cheddar cheese, ham, a special sauce, and a fried egg ($11.50), the California burger coalesces a collaboration of guacamole, fried onions, and chipotle mayo ($11), and the bison burger unites a confluence of grilled tomato and red onions over 8 ounces of bison meat ($12.50). Burger Burger's cooks prepare six Nathan's hotdogs, including the texas dog, which is loaded with bacon, mushrooms, cheese, and barbecue sauce ($5.25), chicken sandwiches ($9.50), and low-carb meat platters ($9.75–$11.50) presented on high-carb plates.
Despite its name, Burger Burger is hardly repetitive. In fact, the burger joint proves that you can do quite a lot with a 6-ounce patty of Angus beef. You might swap out your bun for an English muffin, for example, and slather your burger in horseradish-cream sauce and sauteed onions, resulting in the Bill burger. The Berta burger adds ham, a fried egg, and "special sauce" to the classic sandwich, whereas Thursday's ultimate stuffed burger—one of the daily specials—plumps up the patty with bacon bits, cheese, and barbecue sauce.
Then again, you don't always need beef to make a burger. Alternatives on the menu include bison, turkey, and veggie patties, which are formed by continually mooing at vegetables until they're convinced they're a cow. Complete your meal with a thick milkshake and a salad or side of fries. Of course, when it comes to fries, you're faced with more choices: french fries, cheese fries, chili-cheese fries, sweet potato fries, and curly fries.
