On Friday I made the rare proclamation, “I want a burger.” Being in the neighborhood, I decided to try the new Standard Grill for lunch.
This burger was quite possibly one of the top five burgers I’ve ever had in my life. Granted I don’t eat them often, but it was thick, juicy, and came with a large side of perfectly crisp fries. Much, much better than my friend’s turkey club, which could have come from any no name diner.
- Love the clean brasserie feel. The restaurant gets tons of light (at lunch) and is beautiful.
- We had great hostesses, but a horrible waitress. Very bad service.
- The bathrooms! They appear totally unmarked so you have no idea which side is for men and which for women (I just read there is a coin on the floor that tells you). Disaster waiting to happen.
Overall, the food and the fun scene will keep me coming back. Can’t wait to try it for dinner, although the bright, casual lunch will definitely be a redo.
