we went post chelsea flea market. the verdict is "eh." the chicago dog was just ok, correct but kind of smallish. emporer's new clothes on the burger and coffee shake. burger was waaay overcooked and POP BURGER small. seemed like pretty good meat but it suffered from terrible cooking. not even in the same league as places like CORNER BISTRO or DONOVANS. i'll go back this summer but i truthfully i think i "get it" and i'm not impressed. the crinkle cut fries looked great but we did not try them. service as our british friends would say best is dodgey.
ps--it must have been picnic day or something but i had a sausage dog w/ mustard and kraut and a spinich knish at KATZ later on and that was the bomb as usual.
