Nearly anything you could imagine on your burger is here, including
foie gras, fried eggs, portobello mushrooms and five dipping sauces. French fries come in three styles (all could be crisper): shoestring, sweet-potato and cottage. Fortunately, there’s a sampler for the indecisive. Even the decor is burgerlike: bun-beige ceilings, medium-rare red-brown walls and ketchup-colored banquettes. Unbunned choices include large, fresh and flavorful salads. Treat yourself to thick milk shakes enhanced with flavored extracts and even liquor, or guzzle a postburger drink
on the rooftop.

Since there was no food on the rooftop, we had to swing in for dinner. Burgers were great and the fry option was delicious, even when the cottage fries disappeared off the plate first! There are a couple different dipping sauces that I really enjoyed - a sweet one that went real well with the sweet potato fries and even the ketchup or spicy fry sauce was great. I opted for a unique fajita burger burrito which I was a little skeptical about but when it arrived sizzling on a hot plate and I took a bite, I was truly in love. Great stuff!
