Good Grub: Corner Bistro

After reading this article, my friend Andy and I headed out to this place before watching American Idiot a couple of weekends ago. We had originally planned on hitting up some fancy Manhattan restaurant, but we were decked out in jeans and sneakers that day, and didn't feel like getting dressed just for dinner.

We head out to this bar in the West Village. It was Sunday night, and the place was crowded. We stood in line, squished between the wall and the bar stools for about 20 minutes. Andy got us beers ($2.75 a pop!), while we waited. The menu was simple. Burger. Cheeseburger. Bistro Burger (bacon cheeseburger). Fries. That's it. Their website has a couple of other things on the menu, but it wasn't posted on the sign hanging off the wall when we went there. Just the things I listed; nothing else. We each had a Bistro Burger and a side of fries for each of us (because they are small portions) and a couple more $2.75 brews. Fantastic!

There was nothing fancy about this place at all. I'm sure there's fat and calories involved somewhere in there, but I think I can count on one hand how many actual beef burgers I've eaten in the last 6 months. This is like the kind of burger you would get out of a backyard bbq- juicy, tasty aromatic, and just plain YUMMY. At $6.50 for a bacon cheeseburger with pickles and another $2.50 for a side of fries, you can't go wrong.

It's crowded and very no-frills. The people are nice and service is super fast. You won't break the bank stopping for a bite and a brew at this place!
