It was “Junior” night out with my team, and myself and the one other female on my desk were put in charge of picking the restaurant for our crew (6 guys, 2 girls) to go to dinner. After an extensive search, we selected Burger and Barrel down in SoHo. We knew we needed somewhere that was ‘dude-friendly’ and in a perfect location for going out after. After choosing B&B, we enthusiastically told the boys we found the perfect spot to enjoy some “Burgers and Beers!” Burgers and beers are anything BUT music to a nobread-ers ear, as Beer is a no-go and burgers aren’t THAT fun without the bun…
To my surprise, B&B offers gluten free buns! The burgers are huge and topped with two even bigger onion rings (NOT gluten free). I ordered the burger and sweet potato fries (no onion rings) and thought both were amazing. And then I tried my colleague’s truffle burger and nearly collapsed. I love all things truffle, and B&B has perfected the art of adding shaved truffle to red meat. The truffle fries are a perfect supplement to this gem, and I also recommend supplementing all burgers with any of B&B’s salads, fries, and side orders. If you can handle cross contamination, you will be in french fry heaven with the sweet potato and truffle fries, and the brussels sprouts nofeta are a favorite of mine, too. For those of you who aren’t in the mood for a burger, B&B offers meat and fish entrees including salmon, chicken, and steaks that I highly recommend.
All in Burger and Barrel is great. Great drinks, perfect for large groups, AND gluten free burger buns… I will absolutely be back soon.
