Finally got a chance to stop by this little gem of a bistro. Really impressed! The menu is extensive, even though it consists mostly of burgers, and to a lesser extent Vienna hot dogs, and assorted bacon and belly dishes. For appetizers, wings plus a few Asian specialties made up the bulk of offerings. I was interested in their extensive listing of IPA beers (over 100 types) and bourbon/whiskeys, that sounded like lots of fun! The server suggested something called Brickhouse Breakfast Nitro (he swore it wasn't from Patchogue but didn't know its actual origins)...I'm not much of a beer drinker but I fell in love. He was kind enough to bring us little tastes of different beers before we chose, he was really great.
We started with something they had listed under their specialty French fries: Korean BBQ fries, with bok choy, kimchee, and bulgogi beef over curly fries, all topped with a runny fried egg. We would have been fighting over the last bites except it was definitely enough for two...or three! I just finished off the leftovers for breakfast as a matter of fact. I would go back there again just for that.
The burgers were fantastic, and it takes a lot for me to rave about a burger. They grind the meat themselves, and of course it shows. We chose a 12 oz/cooked over wood and charcoal, served on a brioche roll; they also have them cooked on a "raging hot" grill; or else steamed. Toppings galore to choose from. They also have a falafel burger or chicken burger for the non-believers. We were only able to finish half of ours, it was a very generous portion.
They also had quite the assortment of fries. I was thrilled when I ordered what they call a hand cut wedge, and it turned out to be identical to the ones I get at my favorite place upIsland: whole potatoes quartered lengthwise and fried to perfect crispiness. Never saw them anywhere else before, that was a real nice surprise. And again, I don't eat French fries unless they totally thrill me. I'm a tough customer when it comes to this kind of meal, but I was in heaven. Three out of three, a home run.
The "d" in their name stands for "dessert", but we were way too stuffed. Here's their menu, I'm planning on working my way through it over the next year or so ;-)
They are on Rte 25, just east of Miller Place, in a small shopping center. So if you're ever out this way.......maybe you'll run into me!
