3:55PM on a Wednsday.
Austin texts: It’s hump-day and I could use a burger and a beer. I’m near SoHo, where should I go?
Austin – while not quite in SoHo you won’t regret the uber ride to the East Village for a Royale with Cheese. Don’t worry though, Royale is not a French MacDonalds with a strict adherence to the metric system – and the eponymous burger isn’t just any old quarter pounder, but in French.
If you haven’t seen Pulp Fiction then not a lot of what I told you makes sense. As your friendly neighborhood concierge let me make a life altering suggestion for you, go see Pulp Fiction.
As for the Royale it is bar none the best burger in Alphabet Town and one of the best burgers on the island.
The space is fantastic and not overly boisterous. Although it’s a little chilly for it now, make sure to check it out on a warm day as well for their patio.
The menu is everything you need from a burger shack and then some. Although I usually swear by the French Fries wherever I go – this is one of the few places on the planet that I opt for the Onion Rings. They are out of this world.
A couple of TV’s above the bar are perfect for catching a game.
Can’t imagine a better way to put a knife (and fork) into the middle of the week.
