Manhattan’s Missing Quirk Has Been Located |
For all its delicious food from diverse cuisines in beautiful restaurants, Manhattan doesn’t have a lot of restaurants with abundant quirk. Richie’s Burger Joint at Schatzie’s
The Taste: I’m not going to sit here (I sit when I write. I know it’s not healthy and I should really get a standing desk, but I haven’t budgeted for that this year!) and tell you that the Schatzie is the best burger I’ve ever had. Frankly, it was just okay. I went to Richie’s both because I heard the space was interesting (as mentioned above) and because people who I trust told me that they really enjoyed the burger. Well, my burger was pretty bland. The ground-in-house patty wasn’t seasoned particularly well at all. The burger came with a side of Russian dressing, which I’m typically a fan of, but this time around it leaned a little too heavy on the paprika (I assume. Could have been something else. Who cares).
The Verdict: Despite my middling burger experience, I am definitely going to go back because some of the dishes I saw others getting looked incredible, including the Dirty Brisket Sandwich and the RETURN OF THE POPOVER (were people really clamoring for this?).
Richie’s Burger Joint is located at 2665 Broadway in Manhattan, New York.
