The Experience: I like lamb, but I don’t have a lot of experience eating lamb burgers. I tasted someone else’s lamb burger at Kefi (so happy that they’ve reopened!), and I greatly preferred my beef burger. But when Pounds & Ounces told me that they were serving a lamb burger, with feta cheese, pickled cucumber, and harissa aioli on a ciabatta bun, my attention was firmly grabbed. I had heard great things about P&O’s F&KN Burger, so I figured that it was a safe place to give lamb another go-around. I’m glad that I did.
Burger Ordered: Lamb Burger
I had been curious about the asparagus fries, but settled for the battered french fries when I was told that they were the typical side for this burger. I was not disappointed. They were incredibly tasty, and worth the extra holiday weight they put on me.
The Verdict: Pounds & Ounces is both a somewhat sceney Chelsea bar and a wonderful place to get a burger. Perfect for a date between two people who don’t mind getting their hands dirty.
Pounds & Ounces is located at 160 8th Avenue in Manhattan, New York.
