The Royalton burger is fantastic (named for the farm where they get a lot of their meats). I usually don’t like brioche buns, but this one held up just fine. What’s inside? Dry aged wagyu beef, beef heart, malted bacon jam, Vermont cheddar, smoked tomato and frisee.
For $27 it comes with fries, and they’re great: crispy shoestring style, nicely seasoned, crisp and flavorful.
But they also sell “animal fat fries,” where the animal fat used to fry the potatoes changes on a nightly basis. When I went, it was beef fat.
These are really nice, but I kinda liked the shoestring fries better.
Next up, General Tso’s pig face!
This thing is insane, and for $85 it can easily feed four people. It comes with cilantro, pickled onion and pancake wraps.
We also tried a few starters. First, the kielbasa pigs in a blanket. The mustard on these was awesome! Great puff pastry, really nice flavor on the meat.
Soy-chili beef jerky. So tender and flavorful!
And finally, an array of desserts. Peanut butter pie, raspberry cheesecake, and an assortment of cookies.
I’ll definitely be coming back to this place to try some steaks. In the meantime, I highly recommend you get your asses over here for the Royalton burger.
