P.J. Clarke’s – New York, New York

Before I even took a look at the menu at P.J. Clarke’s I went to check out the restroom. A friend of mine had told me I should take a gander. They were right. It was very saloon like and odd so I liked it. I sat down and while the bar area was overrun by people, the dining area wasn’t anywhere near as full. I order their Burger with Cheese and decide not to go “The Cadillac” route (Bacon & Cheese), Onions though are a different thing. The sides are a la carte (ordered separately). Instead of choosing the Fries which were the obvious choice I opted for the Mashed Potatoes w/Turkey Gravy.

The Mashed Potatoes were very creamy and Buttery. The Turkey Gravy does it no justice. The ‘Tatoes stood well on their own. Just as I was being served my Burger I saw someone at another table receiving their Fry order. The Fries are served in a cylinder and they seemed to have really enjoyed their Fries. Yes, I was watching them from a distance.

Once I’m served the Burger my first thought is…Wow! It was fresh beef not frozen and had a nice crumbly texture due to the grind. Taste-wise this 6 ouncer was also a winner.
