Black Iron Burger Shop Restaurant Review

: This East Village burger-centric eatery threw its patty onto the grill at the right time: during the golden age of the New York hamburger. With about a dozen high-rise tables (and a half-dozen seats at the bar), the diminutive Black Iron fills up fast with people and unfortunately, a sizeable dose of smokiness. Not that it deters the burger-loving crowd that comes here for the double patty house burger The Black Iron, or its fried egg and caramelized grilled onion wearing cousin, the Masterpiece. All are cooked to a slight pinkish middle (those who like their burger cooked otherwise are out of luck). The not-so-favorably priced extras, such as fries and onion rings, lean toward the greasy side while portions tend to be on the minuscule side.
