His name to most: Nick.
His name to you: Rattlesnake Cheeseburger Guy.
Welcome to his base of operations, The Burger Guru, a carnivorous Williamsburg burger joint that serves exotic LaFrieda patties (like bison) and fields bizarre by-request meat suggestions (like anything not endangered), now open.
Finally, someone’s figured out a way to marry grilling with obscure game hunting. And what that means to you: no more treks into the jungles of Papua New Guinea for your kangaroo filets.
From here on out, you’ll satiate all inexplicable and exploratory hamburger cravings by getting on the L and riding it to this garage turned BYOB backyard in Brooklyn. There, you’ll find exclusive blends (lamb, bison, organic turkey) from the Cadillac of meat purveyors, Pat LaFrieda. Also, gamey menu regulars like antelope and ostrich. And on the weekends, well, something truly different.
See, every Saturday through Sunday, Nick’s going to serve a unique off-the-menu option (up first, Cajun Alligator Steak Sandwiches). How he determines what that special will be: public demand. So if there’s something you’ve been wanting to try with caramelized onions, applewood-smoked bacon and a fried egg, just let him know. And FYI, he likes a good challenge.
So if it’s unicorn you want, it’s unicorn you’ll get.
