The Feast of the Immaculate Conception
July 21st, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

Event Description

July 21 at 4PM, we return to our roots with the annual Feast of the Immaculate Conception, celebrating the flawless birth of Burger Club at the genesis point: Whitman's in the East Village. $25 gets you any burger on their menu (there are many, each one a glorious, polished gem of beefy delight), a side such as their blue cheese fries, crack kale and more, and a tall glass of beer or wine to wash it all down.

Come back to the beginning with us. Afterwards, we'll ravage the East Village and possibly break into my old apartment...

Wasn’t expecting the blue cheese in the middle of the patty but was pleasantly surprised by the texture and overall taste. Maybe a little too much cheese (some of which conveniently fell out of the burger), but overall this was a damn good burger. (Also high marks for general ambience and subtle call outs to eponymous poet laurate of Brooklyn and all bridges so named.)

The Hound is a masterpiece of flavor and balance. An intense blast of flavors that still manages to be complex and well blended. Whitman’s remains one of the best in the biz - quality people serving quality food, with class. The comped Tots made it extra special. Brita was an absolute delight. This place makes me happy.

The peppers blended into the patty gave the burger a nice slow burn without taking anything away from the medium rare juiciness

The Hound is a Myriad of taste and texture. All the right decisions were made is constructing this beauty- the savoriness of the meat, texture of the bacon and potato and choice of gruyere cheese is anything you could ask for. As for Andrew...he’s wearing a snappy burger pin, and I appreciate the relativness. He also recently got a haircut...which was a good move. He also grows toe nails like Wolverine... Repect.

It couldn’t compare directly to the Hound, but it’s a damn fine, creative bit of meat slinging and I can’t argue with the unified vision of it. It’s sloppiness was nicely complimented by my blue cheese “cat puke” fries.

Muy bien.

The strength in this burger, to me, is its harmoniousness. Not as weird as you may think. And, I appreciate the size of the burger. Always look forward to it.

The Hound remains the king! Shishito peppers/fries could have used a little more salt, but the free, incredible tater tots more than made up for it.

Andrew did great and has some amazing accessories today.

A fine bacon-infused burger. The smoked gruyere cheese paired perfectly with the bacon below. Andrew seemingly cross-promoted this with his classical music lists ... Andrew = 2.3/10

Patty Melt was perfectly toasted and a great combo of cheeses, but doesn't beat The Hound in my opinion.

I had the Mangold last year, and it was delicious. This time I had the Hound, and it is going to be hard to beat. Perfect ratio of patty to toppings. Crunch from the shoestring fries. Umami from the cheese. Bacon-y flavor, excellently cooked medium rare. I usually try for variety, but I would order this again next time and be delighted.

Sides came out after the meal, and I was too full to enjoy more than a couple of the fries. The staff brought out bowls of crispy tater tots with sauce before our burgers came out - points for that! - and the tots were great.

All ‘round awesome time.

The taste is very lovely. I like that it squirts out cheese. Lacks a little variation in texture, but only because I went halvsies on the hound .

Andrew had a burger pin, which felt like a strongman tactic that I didn’t like. He’s not that Burger King! 🍔🤴4 from me.
