|Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger w/caramelized onions and fries|
THE PROMISE: No meat burgers until December 2011
THE REWARD: Dinner at Minetta Tavern in December
GUESS WHAT?: I failed. I lasted 7 months. I hadn't had a meat burger since November 2010. I don't crave red meat so this was not particularly hard for me to do. But my friends were in town last month and we had stopped in at Mark to kill some time before dinner. This bar's specialty was sliders. Everyone ordered sliders and there were no meat substitutes. Fries, which were on the menu, would not be a stand in for my burger. I caved. I am weak. I realized how hard it is to be a vegetarian in NYC. I am a whiner. Sue me.
So before I continue rambling on, here is the burger that broke my streak and it was PRETTY DAMN GOOD.
