B&B is located on Houston st in New York City. This “normal looking” burger joint is actually a wine destination in disguise. The wine list is quite impressive, with excellent white and red burgundies and some good Piemonte choices as well.
Accompanying our burgers was a 1976 Gevrey-Chambertin by Camille Giroud. A strange choice maybe, but a surprisingly ok pairing. The burger also happens to be their award winning burger.
B&B was started by John McDonald and Chef Josh Capon, as an American pub with a world class wine list. On Wednesdays they have dinners with wine pairings where they try to introduce interesting winemakers. Check out their website here: http://www.burgerandbarrel.com/
Mercer Street Hospitality have other venues in the area, including El Toro Blanco and Lure Fish Bar. I’ll be trying one of those next time I find myself in NYC.
