Again, with burgers on my mind I tried to seek out a great burger here in New York.
While I was shopping, I came across this modern burger joint in Bloomingdale's called Flip. I remembered reading somewhere that it was pretty good, and some regard it as a top burger in New York. So I said screw it, and went for it.
Now having eaten some great burgers such as Umami burger, Father's Office, Daniel Boulud and others, I came in with high standards, especially since the prices at this place top both of the aforementioned.
I ended up getting the Benedict Burger. (American Wagyu w/ Canadian Bacon, Ultra-Melted American cheese sauce and a Fried Egg) $23
The first thing that popped in my mind after the first bite was that the meat was hard. I don't know how you make kobe beef hard, but if was, like they over mixed it and then mixed it some more. I can't believe I paid this much for such crap meat. Everything else was mediocre, including the fries. The brioche bun was probably the best part of the meal.
I don't get it, this place spends all of this money of the decor and then shell out burger was tasteless and hard beef.
Never again. Especially for that price.
