On August 23rd, I had the pleasure of attending Burger Night at Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk. #BurgerNight every Tuesday is a collaborative between Executive Chef Savannah Jordan and celebrated chefs from New York City. Each Tuesday night, there will be a featured chef and mouthwatering burger on the menu. Last night, my husband and I tried two burgers, one by Chef Jordan and the second by visiting Chef Matt Hyland of Emily in Brooklyn.
First was the Emmy Burger by Chef Hyland: Fleisher’s dry-aged beef, caramelized onions, Tom Cat pretzel bun, Grafton Cheddar, Emmy Sauce ($18). This is one serious burger; the caramelized onions are dynamic and the warm pretzel bun knocks it out of the park. The dripping orange “Emmy” sauce cascading down on to the plate reminded us of a seriously good buffalo wing sauce. I don’t say this lightly, it is literally one of the best burgers we have ever had. Emily will be my first stop in Brooklyn this fall.
Second, we had Virginia’s Burger by Chef Jordan: clothbound cheddar, onion marmalade, bone marrow ($18). The marmalade created a taste-bud sensation! Chef really outdid herself with this one! You must stop in next Tuesday to try her burgers.
Past burgers included Chalk Point Kitchen’s fabulous vegan burger, and Chef Sam Talbot’s fried chicken burger.
Come in August 30th to experience #BurgerNight for the last night of the season.
