Pop Pub Restaurant Review

: The small Pop Burger chain has branched out with this NYU-area restaurant, a burger joint and pub in one. Welcome to Pop Pub, a handsome wood-clad eatery with one too many TVs and a lot of beers on tap (about a dozen) and by the bottle (a few dozen). The menu is expanded too. Besides the slider-ish signature burger (which come in pairs) and the “invisible burger” (a greasy fried portobello burger) and a “superman burger” (which should be renamed “Monster” because of its insane size), there are also lamb chops, fried calamari, steak sandwiches and lobster rolls. Nothing works particularly well here, but nothing is particularly awful, either. It’s food to go with your beer and not the other way around.
