Gotham Burger Manhattan

I went. They were out of the beef bacon that others have raved about on this board. The wait staff was sweet but bumblingly inexperienced, like a comedy routine. i.e. 2 people order 1 drink each. 1 drink comes. ask again. 3 separate waiters come bearing 1 drink each for a total of 4 drinks. Order 2 burgers - 1 each - and a side of fries. 1 burger arrives. ask again. nothing. ask again. 2nd burger finally arrives. ask again . fries come. All so charmingly, incompetently polite that it was actually amusing.

But I was there for the burgers that everyone was raving about. Last winter I had a truly memorable burger, a burger to rave about, at a party at Prime at the Bentley. Great restaurant burgers exist. I do like the ones at Amsterdam Burger.

But this burger was a burger, nothing special. I adore fries but these fries were just okay. And I am a fan of great bread. The brioche it was served on was okay, but nothing special.

It did seem like a comfortable place to go with kids. A burger shop. convenient, but not chowish.
