“The flavor of our burger is better than most burgers for several reasons: not just because of our blend of meat, or the fact that we cook them on a cast iron, but our fat content is pretty high too.”

In celebration of summertime food, come meet Chef Jeremy Spector of The Brindle Room in Manhattan’s East Village, a cozy, charming, neighborhood restaurant that sears up quite possibly, the best tasting burger in New York City.

Chef Jeremy walked me through the design of The Brindle Room burger, explaining in detail what makes them so sought after and so terribly addicting. For me, it’s all about the meat. There’s something special about the beef in this burger. You can taste it in every bite, and feel the flavor develop with every chew. It’s a quality that Jeremy likens to “a fine cheese or good wine” – a special burger blend, butchered just for the restaurant, that’s part fresh meat, part aged meat, and part dangerously delicious deckle fat. Truly, a burger for meat lovers. Truly, something that you need to try and devour very, very soon. Trust me. I love a good burger.

    I couldn’t watch the video as it won’t run…I don’t know if you explained deckle and fat cap…I had never heard the term deckle used, however I have heard fat cap. On a side note, as of 2006, USDA prime deckle was running 25 bucks a pound and some chefs said after trimming down for usage, it’s closer to fifty bucks a pound. That was 2006, but even so, sounds insanely expensive…if I’m going to eat a rib eye, i want a rib eye. a burger is a burger for a reason…

    That meat is so savage.
