Name: Upland Cheeseburger
Location: Upland, 345 Park Avenue South, New York, NY 10010
Protein: 2, 4 oz. grass-fed La Frieda beef patties
Bun: Orwasher’s Seeded Bun
Toppings: American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, peppadew peppers, avocado
Burger to Bun Ratio: Perfect
Accompaniments: Fries, pickle & a side of ketchup
The thin patties are cooked to around medium. The savoriness of the cheese, beef, and peppers go well with the smoothness & butteriness of the very healthy portion of avocado. The Orwasher’s seeded bun held up to the juiciness until the very last 2-3 bites, where it finally started to split, though I was able to avoid any burger insides spilling onto my plate. The bun had a firm exterior, with a light, airy interior. The tasty accompanying shoestring fries were salted, crispy, and served in a perfect portion.
Keep in mind, the burger is only available on the lunch menu. It is a little on the pricey side, but it you won’t be disappointed!
