BLT Burger Restaurant Review

: A far cry from your average burger joint, this casual dining spot from chef Laurent Tourondel turns out burgers on the gourmet end of the spectrum. Starters include Kobe slider bites and deep-fried pickles, and the attention to quality sets these versions apart from what you find at other run-of-the-mill burger eateries. BLT's certified Angus beef burgers may weigh in at a mere seven ounces, but that's a good size for the flavorful, cooked-to-order patties. Toppings such as Shaft's blue vein cheese, fried eggs and homemade chili are available for guests to customize burgers to their liking. Those not into beef will be pleased to find falafel, lamb tandoori, and varieties of chicken burgers to go along with the three shapes of french fries. More than 20 beers are on tap, or diners can try one of the whimsical milk shakes such as the "lunch box" --- a concoction of vanilla ice cream, peanut butter and grape jelly. Late-night visitors find more of a kick from the spiked milk shake section, which proposes the fun "Grandma's Treat," a combination of Maker's Mark, caramel and vanilla ice cream.

Over-priced, over-hyped, and not worth the bother.

BLT Burger... What to say. Nice decor. Friendly service. Food? total afterthought. Based on a lot of reviews I've read around the Web and in print, I was expecting a darn good burger. The appetizers were fine enough, and raised my expectations. Fried pickles? Good, if you can only eat a couple bites. Waffle bites? Over priced (5 pieces of waffle fries topped, tater-skin style) but decent.

Burger? DON'T EFFIN BOTHER. Honestly, I've had some pretty good burgers around the country (Father's Office in Santa Monica, anyone?) and this one outright sucked. For one, they came out cold, and the buns were completely substandard. I barely noticed that my "BLT" burger came with cheese (Buck extra thanks much), and the sauce was runny and tasteless. Tomatos and shredded lettuce combined to make the whole thing a mushy mess. For the amount they charge, could they not bother to get a bun that actually a) has flavor, and b) doesn't freakin' fall apart. Come on, save a few bucks and go to Johnny Rocket's... you'll get a better burger, and you won't feel jipped. I certainly did after footing a $120 for lunch for three... burgers, a couple apps, fries, and a pitcher of Bud.

If BLT (yes, I know it's Bistro Laurent Tourondel) wants to live up to something, maybe they should just make a "BLT" sandwich instead of a burger. At least you can't screw up bacon, lettuce, and tomato, between two slices of toast... or maybe you can.
