New York’s 5 Best Burgers? Wow! Who are they? Who right? Who’s Not? Yes, it’s not easy, and who’s to say who is the best, who’s not, and that they are thee authority and decider of who is # 1 and Who’s Not? Well, there are any number of people, magazines, newspapers, and other intitties doing articles, stories and what-not on the Best Burger or Best Burgers in town and around the country. It’s a big and popular subject.
Well, this is just ours. Not seeing that his is the definative list and list to end all. It’s just ours. And of these 5, we ourselves what put any number at the Top of The Heep, they’re all great burgers.
THE SKINNY On EACH
SCHNIPPERS
Schnippers is awesome. They came on the scene a couple years ago. They didn’t make all that much of a splash in the first year or year 1/2, but now? They’ve Splashed, and in quite a big way. They just opened their 3rd location in Manhattan and seems like their expansion will lead to any number across the country, alla Shake Shack. Spaeaking of Shake Shack, Schnipper’s opened their first place less than 200 feet from Shake Shacks hugely famous Flagship Burger Joint (and 1st) at Madison Park at 23rd Street and Madison Avenue.
Anyway, the Schnipper Burger is awesome. The Schnipper Burger is a classic straight forward burger. It’s 5 ounces, fresh beef (never frozen), cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. We love it, and think it taste exactlt as a burger should, with an emphasis on the tasty beef patty.
JG MELON
JG Melon is one great old institution up on 3rd Avenue at 74th Steet on New York’s Upper East Side. The Melon is a cool classic old school bar, the kind that just can’t be duplicated. Great natural vibe, and un-contived. And guess what? they’ve got one of New York top burgers, if not thee # 1 tops .. Some say, they are the best. Their Burger, and we wouldn’t give them a fight on that. We love em too, and almost picked them for the # 1 spot on our list. What do you think.
SHAKE SHACK
A Great Burger! Some say the Best. We did too for some time, but we feeel that Schnipper’s has edged them out. Though we wouldn’t gie anyone a hard time if they Shake Shack is # 1 … They’re Buger is Classic, just the right size, seasoned and cooked to beautiful tasty perfection. We just Love Em.
PETER LUGER
The Luger Burger is awesome. It’s quite tasty, and makes our top 5 list for it’s tastieness and the fact that you can go into this Mecca of Steakdom and get a Burger for just 12 Bucks .. But you probably won’t. You gonna want some cheese on that $1.50 and the Bacon ($4.25) is a “Must Have” at Lugers. If you go for Fries (Only $1.95), your burgers gonna cost you about $19.00
But hey, “It Peter Luger” and that’s a bargain. 
You can only get The Luger Burger at Lunch, and we just love hopping over the Williamsburg Bridge every 2 or 3 months to get one. You will too.
MINETTA TAVERN
You can’t beat the ambiance and History of Minetta Tavern .. This Historical Old Greenwich Village Haunt is cool as can be. And you’ll feel you are too once and if you secure a seat inside. The master of the restaurant business in New York, Keith McNally rescued this great old joint, spruced it up just a bit, retaining its wonderful origianl decor, placed a couple great chefs at the helm and opened her up to rave reviews. The menu is French Bistro Steak House, with big juicy Steaks, Bistro Classics, and a pair of New York’s Hottest and most loved burgers; The Famed Black Label Burger ($24.00) and The Minetta Burger ($16.00) .. The Black Label Burger is by far the most famous of the two, made with the Black Label Blend of Dry Aged Beef from famed New York Butcher Pat La Freida .. Dry Aged Beef may be great for Steaks, such as the ones so famous at Peter Luger and Minetta Tavern, but we feel that this beef doesn’t translate so well to Burgers … We prefer the Minetta Burger. How bout you?

KETCHUP or CATSUP

15 Jun




KETCHUP or CATSUP ? What’s Up” ???

Both words are derived from the Chinese ke-tsiap, a pickled Fish Sauce. It made its way to Malaysia where it became kechap and ketjap in Indonesia. Catsup and katchup are acceptable spellings used interchangeably with ketchup, however, ketchup is the way it is popularly used today. “Catsup”, which dates to the same time, may well be a different Romanization of the same word, trying to come closer to a sound that doesn’t really exist in English.
In the 1800s, “ketchup” was most common in Britain and “catsup” was most common in the US for reasons unknown. The two words never really canceled each other out because in their formative years, there weren’t spelling dictionaries choosing a “correct” version of words. (Many Americans pronounced “catsup” the same as “ketchup” in any case.) Today, “ketchup” is the dominant term in both countries, though “catsup” still has its strongholds, especially in the southern US.
There was a sudden interest in the difference between catsup and ketchup after an episode of popular TV series Mad Men featured a (fictional) pitch to ketchup company Heinz. 

According to a Heinz spokesperson, Henry John Heinz first brought his product to market as “Heinz Tomato Catsup,” but changed the spelling early on to distinguish it from competitors. Del Monte did not switch spellings until 1988, after it became clear that ketchup was the spelling of choice for American consumers. Hunt’s switched the name of their product from catsup to ketchup significantly earlier.

SINATRA SUNDAY SAUCE GRAVY

17 Apr
FRANK SINATRA
 
 
SUNDAY
GRAVY alla SINATRA
    As a boy and young man, Dolly Sinatra would
often make Frankie Spaghetti & Meatballs, which Frank loved all his life,
from his Mom and at his favorite restaurant “Patsy’s” on West 56th
Street in New York.
    Frank
also liked Maccheroni with Sausage & Meatballs, otherwise known as Sunday
Sauce or simply “Gravy” with Sausage & Meatballs.
MAKING
SUNDAY GRAVY alla SINATRA
To
make “Sunday Gravy alla Sinatra,” simply make the above recipe for Spaghetti
& Meatballs. Cook and brown 1 ½ pounds of Italian Sweet Sausages, and after
you have completed step # 5 in previous recipe, add the browned Sausages and
continue cooking and following the above recipe. After you have simmered the
tomatoes and sausages for 1 – 1/4 hours, you will brown the meatballs and add
to “Sauce.” Continue cooking another 35 minutes, on the lowest simmer, and
“Voila,” you’ll end up with Sunday Sauce Gravy alla Sinatra, “Just the way
Frank liked it!”
 

PS .. For the most authentic version of the way
Frank ate Sunday Sauce Gravy, use Ronzoni brand Spaghetti or Rigatoni pasta,
and don’t forget to have some Frank Sinatra records playing as you make the
Meatballs & Gravy and when you are eating as well. And it is definitely
appropriate to have Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Jerry Vale playing as well,
but Sinatra is a must. Bon Appetito!
