The Corner Bistro New York Burger

CORNER BISTRO
 
Greenwich Village, New York

 

 

Happy to see Corner Bistro’s Burger can still make it to # 1 Best of New York list these days. I’ve been eating Cheeseburgers there since 1984. Yes 26 Years of Bistro Burgers. Back then, the Burger at the Corner Bistro was for Year-After-Year thee perennial favorite, # 1, Top, Best Burger in New York, rated by the Top and most Powerful food Authorities of the day, New York Magazine, The NY Times, Cue Magazine, The Post, The Village Voice, GQ, Bob Lape on 7’s Eyewitness News, The Daily News, so on and so forth. Nine out of ten people, newspapers, and news agency’s, The Bistro Burger was always “Tops,” # 1. It no longer is. And it was tops for some 30 years. Quite a run. Sadly the quality of the Burger has gone down a bit, and there are numerous chemistry better, tastier Burgers in town. Shake Shack get my Vote for the Top, New York’s best Burger, with Bills Bar and Burger and Peter Luger not far behind. But the Shake Shack Burger has all the proper elements that come together and make for perfect chemistry of, dear I say, “The Perfect Burger.” Well if not the perfect Burger, New York’s Best, or at least amongst the Best, everyone has their opinion. Some not as qualified as others. As I’ve been eating the East Coast’s Best Burgers since childhood, and being a former Chef Culinary Professional, I have greater qualifications than most.

The Shake Shack Burgers elements that make it so good, are: Top Quality Beef, Just the right size and thickness, not too thin nor too thick, which unfortunately many think makes a burger is better, the thicker it is. Not so. A 6 oz., 3/4″ Burger is Best and it has to be cooked on a Flat-Top Grill cooking in its own fat to qualify amongst the best. Cooking on a grated grill, just won’t do. You’ll often get terribly overcooked hard spots, losing all important beef fat for the burger to cook in. You’ll need a good hamburger bun, toasted preferred, not too fancy, and a major No-No is the use of an English Muffin. Though i Love them for breakfast, English Muffins are a terrible choice, pairing to a Burger. the Burger has to be properly cooked
And one of thee most important rules to a great Burger, it can’t cost more than $6.50, and about $4.50 is even better. The Shake Shake burger meets all these requirements, even exceeding them.
Back to the Bistro Burger. For nostalgias sake and Price to value ratio, combined with the great old New York Bar ambiance, The Bistro Burger always makes it on my Top 10 List. As the Post states, to be able to get a great burger for just $6.50 with Beers at $2.75 in one of New York’s few remaining Bohemian Bars, and in Greenwich Village? A combination that just can’t be beat.

Ode to The Artichoke by Pablo Neruda

ARTICHOKES
 
Original Painting by ELISABETH FRASER
 

A POEM to The ARTICHOKE by PABLO NERUDA




ODE to The ARTICHOKE



The artichoke
With a tender heart
Dressed up like a warrior,
Standing at attention, it built
A small helmet
Under its scales
It remained
Unshakeable,
By its side
The crazy vegetables
Uncurled
Their tendrills and leaf-crowns,
Throbbing bulbs,
In the sub-soil
The carrot
With its red mustaches
Was sleeping,
The grapevine
Hung out to dry its branches
Through which the wine will rise,
The cabbage
Dedicated itself
To trying on skirts,
The oregano
To perfuming the world,
And the sweet
Artichoke
There in the garden,
Dressed like a warrior,
Burnished
Like a proud
Pomegrante.
And one day
Side by side
In big wicker baskets
Walking through the market
To realize their dream
The artichoke army
In formation.
Never was it so military
Like on parade.
The men
In their white shirts
Among the vegetables
Were
The Marshals
Of the artichokes
Lines in close order
Command voices,
And the bang
Of a falling box.
But
Then
Maria
Comes
With her basket
She chooses
An artichoke,
She’s not afraid of it.
She examines it, she observes it
Up against the light like it was an egg,
She buys it,
She mixes it up
In her handbag
With a pair of shoes
With a cabbage head and a
Bottle
Of vinegar
Until
She enters the kitchen
And submerges it in a pot.
Thus ends
In peace
This career
Of the armed vegetable
Which is called an artichoke,
Then
Scale by scale,
We strip off
The delicacy
And eat
The peaceful mush
Of its green heart.
Thanks to Emiko and Marco for bringing this to my attention.

Sinatra Live Sands Casino las Vegas

GREATEST SINATRA ALBUM EVER
 
 
Well for me anyway … It’s hard to say, but if I was absolutely forced to pick and choose and name my All Time Most Favorite SINATRA Album of all, I have said for many years that it’s SINATRA LIVE at THE SANDS with The Count BASIE ORCHESTRA and Conducted by Mr. Quincy Jones … This album is an absolute Masterpiece, listen and I’m sure you’ll agree… Not only does it feature the greatest singer of All Time Mr. Francis Albert Sinatra, but he’s backed up by the incomparable Count Basie and His Orchestra with the great Quincy Jones conducting .. Then besides all the great songs sung by Frank Sinatra as only Frank can do, you have Sinatra chatting and conversing with the audience and when he starts FLIRTING with a Lady in the audience as he sings “I’VE GOT a CRUSG on YOU,” well it’s absolutely marvelous! Listen and I’m sure you’ll agree.
 
 
 

 
I’VE GOT a CRUSH on YOU
 
SUNG Live at The SANDS CASINO in LAS VEGAS, NEVEDA
 
 
“You want to Meet Monday and pick out the Furniture?” SINATRA ask a lady in the audience as the two flirt during the song, it’s absolutely enchanting.
 
 
 
 

I’VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
 
 
Written by COLE PORTER
 
Sung by The ONE & ONLY Frank Sinatra
