In the day of the $15 burger, Bloom’s is $10 and weighs in at half a pound. NAspy prefers it to the more gourmet versions at Ford’s Filling Station and Literati 2. It comes on a nice soft wheat bun with your choice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, and garlicky aioli on the side. Order it medium rare, and that’s what you’ll get. The fries are crispy brown and oh so good.
We haven’t heard much about the York, the new incarnation of the Highland Park gastropub Wild Hare (different owners), but Chowpatty comments she had a nice, juicy burger with soft bread there.
