What You'll Get
Originally developed to replace pie charts, hamburgers quickly gained popularity when overworked businessmen began licking presentation boards out of delirium. Reap the benefits of human exhaustion with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get one of three gourmet-burger options with fries and soda at Butterfields Restaurant in Hauppauge (up to a $10.95 value).
Lauded by the New York Times, Butterfields Restaurant deftly pairs an upscale menu of New American cuisine with an opulent, chandeliered ambience. Let personal taste or a divining rod guide the choice among three lettuce, tomato, and onion-laden gourmet burgers, each flanked by a 12-ounce soda (a $2 value) and a retinue of adoring fries. The Parkside ($7.95) Burger presents a magnificent 10 ounces of Angus sirloin nestled in a toasted brioche, while The Butterfield Burger (an $8.95 value) adds to that embrace a guard of smoked bacon, cheddar, and frizzled onions. The Butterfield Bull Burger’s (an $8.95 value) tiers of smoked bacon and cheddar support a fried egg ripe for incisor yolk-goring.
Clad in golden art-strewn walls, nattily striped wainscoting, and rich red table linens, Butterfields’ dining room gives burgers their much-deserved moment in the spotlight. Sidle up to the 40-foot-long mahogany bar for a postprandial tipple accompanied with live music on Thursdays, or ribbon-dance away Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights to DJ-mixed beats.
