Hamburger hounds have had little to say about Rare Bar and Grill, but maybe they haven’t yet tried the T-bone burger. This relatively new menu item is a mixture of chopped sirloin and strip, flambéed in tequila, wrapped in apple-smoked bacon, and topped with Murray’s cheddar and a scattering of crispy batter-fried onions. Simply sublime, sighs Scotty100. It’s pricey at $21, he adds, “but man, it was awesome.”
The Knickerbocker Bar and Grill, a perennial favorite in the Village, offers another reliably good burger, a bistro-style version topped with cheddar and bacon and served on a grilled brioche roll. Decent fries and a salad come with it. Delicious and perfect, promises Nikki NYC. Steak lovers endorse Knickerbocker’s T-bone—better than those at dedicated steakhouses, swears tsiblis.
