Like a deceptive winter coat from Old Navy, this burger looked stylishly good on display, but when worn lacked the proper interior and left me unsatisfyingly cold. No, I didn’t actually wear the Stone Street Tavern’s Stuffed bleu cheese burger. And, I certainly did not enjoy it as much as my eyes told me I would. Served on a toasted english muffin and generous amounts of thick crispy bacon, I thought I was walking into a sure thing. But, when you go as far as specifying your burger as “stuffed”, you’d better deliver on that promise!
First bite: no cheese. Second bite: no cheese. Third bite: an EYE DROPPER amount of warmth finally hits my palate. What remained was an empty, cavernous hole where the old bleu should have resided in all its gooey glory! The beef wasn’t a complete miss, being decently tasty albeit not cooked to my medium request. But the fact is this doesn’t live up to the name.
The one positive note were the steak fries, which gave a nice crisp crunch on bite, and nice smooth finish. I did like the mixed green accoutrement as well. Sure, the Financial District isn’t the culinary mecca for all thing outstanding. But they should at least know that outside of the lunch-rush Wall Street business patron, too busy to his/her own shoe let alone take the time to enjoy what they’re cramming into their face, there are normal customers who expect better.
