Whitman's signature burger is the Juicy Luicy, a Minneapolis creation, meaning a burger stuffed with cheese. Here, you can choose between a pimento cheese-stuffed burger or the B'Luicy featuring blue cheese. Many other non-stuffed options are also available if you don't trust yourself to not burn your mouth with hot oozing cheese hidden away in a meaty mound.
Fantastically spicy and juicy, the meaty blend perfectly sweetened with the red onion. This burger is really awesome.
Jamie celebrated with a grilled chicken sandwich that came with a glorious slice of thick bacon and choice of side.
Jamie selected the popular crack kale, but was disappointed to find the kale completely dripping with oil. Crisp but overly greasy, it was hard to eat more than a few pieces.
The fries can be ordered with blue cheese. If you do, it will look like this. Like a blue cheese monster just took a dump on a bowl of fries.
If you're not into blue cheese, the naked, natural cut fries are wonderful on their own.
Whitman's fried pickles, resembling thin, ridged potato chips were greaseless, crisp and deemed a hit by Peter, the fried pickle fanatic.
Afterwards, we tried to quash the spice from the trio of peppers burning a deep hole in my stomach at Cha-An for fanciful tea and scones.
Peter ordered a tremendous looking green tea parfait layered with large mochi chunks and red beans.
I forget how much I love the East Village sometimes, and nights like these really help me to remember !
