I admit it. Every week or so, I need a hamburger and French fries. I’ve tried many local coffee shops and restaurants that serve a classic hamburger and fries combo but am frequently disappointed.

Living in the Gramercy Park area, I recently passed a new restaurant on the corner of 18th St. and Park Avenue South. I was tempted to continue my quest there for the perfect burger and fries.

The entrance is modest, and while there is scaffolding due to maintenance being completed on the upper floors of the building, the inside of the restaurant was spacious and spotless.

I stopped by, and to my amazement, Saltbae Burger served me the best hamburger and French fries ever in the city of New York. Ever!

I selected their New York Burger, which consists of six ounces of tender Wagyu beef with lettuce, tomato, and onions. I opted out of the Pepper Jack cheese.

With the burger came fabulous French fries. The quality of the beef, fries, and their respective seasonings were over the top delicious. I plan to return soon and sample other burger options. If you’re in the Gramercy Park area and crave a simple but delicious classic meal, you’ll want to try Saltbae. Many visitors to the area stop at the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace Museum on E. 20th st. managed by the National Park Service.

It’s a bit more pricey than your regular coffee shop or brunch hamburger and fries but worth it. I can’t recommend it enough! Enjoy!

Tonight was an entertaining concert by influential, gifted, and driven artists. We shall be hearing from them more and more as their sparkling careers continue to evolve. The band was solid, the sound balance was excellent, and the musicians seamlessly shifted through the demands and diverse styles of the songs.

Bullet Train

We’ve entered a dreamscape created by the collective minds of Monty Python, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, and Stanley Kubrick. In this virtual world, we laugh at violence, wait for punchlines, root for our heroes, and experience larger-than-life events that can only occur in fantasies.
