Corner Bistro has long been hailed as one of the best places in NYC for a burger. About 12 years ago I sunk my teeth into a burger here, and only just recently had the chance to come back and try it again.
Most beers are under $4, and the bloody Mary was $7.
The hype is well placed. It IS a great burger and a very fair price (Bistro Burger for under $10). It was nicely cooked, but could benefit from slightly fewer raw onion circles and perhaps a second slice of cheese.
The fries were nicely golden, but lacked a little salt. Nearly perfect.
Better eating experience overall at Gotham West Market, despite the ambiance not being even close to the original. Also tots beat fries here.
