Burgers at Chefs Club Counter
62 Spring St
New York, NY 10012
Do you ever watch a TV show and wonder what the food in the scene tastes like? When I was a kid, I would literally try to make my own Krabby Patties because they just sounded so damn good when Squidward would freak out on the show. Maybe I'm weird, but I think about TV food often. That's where this unique popup at Chefs Club Counter came in! From December 18th-24th, Chef Alvin Cailan (best known for his work in LA at Eggslut) decided to make all of our cartoon food dreams come true. He released a "7 days of Bobs Burgers" menu, studded with creative takes on the traditional American sandwich. Here was the lineup.

For those of you that missed out like I did, it's ok. Don't worry, there's still an awesome lineup of burgers here until February inspired by some of the best chefs in the biz right now. Some of these include:
DANIEL HUMM BURGER BY CHEF DANIEL HUMM
"Chef of San Pellegrino Worlds Best Restaurant 2017. Chicken Patties with Truffle, Gruyere Cheese, and Pickled Shallots on a Warm Soft Potato Bun. Served with a side of French Fries." If you're into being extra, this is your ideal burger. You may as well order a bottle of Dom Perignon as a light beverage on the side.
SUPREME BY ALVIN CAILAN
"Organic Grass-fed Beef Patty with American Cheese, Alvin’s “Special Sauce,” Lettuce, Onions and Pickles, served on a Warm Soft Sesame Bun. Served with a side of French Fries." This burger stands true to the idea that simple is always better. I don't know what it was, but this burger tasted like it invented the Cheeseburger. It was the God of all Burger Gods.
JEAN GEORGES BURGER BY JEAN GEORGES
"Michelin Guide Top 5 French Chefs in USA. Organic Grass-Fed Beef, Pepper Jack Cheese, Avocado, Crispy Red Onions, and Russian Dressing on a Warm Soft Potato Bun. Served with a side of French Fries."
