Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Encounter this illusory edible with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a burger at Heartland Brewery’s Empire State location in Midtown.
Heartland Brewery baits beer connoisseurs and burger buffs with an enticing selection of fresh brews and pub fare in an expansive two-story space. Fit carnivorous fingers with a choice of handheld meat morsels such as the Kobe burger, a tempting patty of freshly ground Kobe beef draped in lettuce and tomato and presented upon a pillowy kaiser roll ($16.95). The grilled turkey burger adorns its poultry façade with a tasty hamburger costume to get invited to bovine pajama parties ($12.95), while the free-range buffalo burger dons Southern sensibilities doused in homemade barbecue sauce ($14.29). A better way to sate seaside hunger than soaking a burger in brine, the sashimi-grade ahi tuna burger is wrangled from underwater plains by manatee mounted cowboys and dotted with wasabi sauce and sesame oil ($14.95). Though not included in the price of the Groupon, bun bundlers can enhance burgers with an array of cheese, bacon, and sautéed veggies ($1.75 each). The pub also proffers its own selection of 16 signature beers, all brewed in New York City, along with an enticing lineup of sweets including piping fresh saccharine circles made by its own donut robot.
