(Lunch advice trip follow-up)
Yes, the Minetta Tavern Black Label Burger was exceptional.
But the pickle. The PICKLE.
Had a difficult time focusing on the burger after 1 bite of the pickle spear. The kind server presented 2 more upon request for 1 more.
She explained that Minetta Tavern makes their own pickles with a combination of brown sugar, nutmeg, cardamon maybe, and several other ingredients I couldn't hear because of the pickle crunch noises.
