Dinner from Zaitzeff (with pics)
My gf and I had a friend over tonight and we had a hankering for burgers and this place, Zaitzeff has always done right by us so we had a few delivered and they were great as always. It's located at 72 Nassau St. Manhattan (bet. Fulton and John Sts.). Phone # 212-571-7272. I guess it could be considered the Financial District/Tribeca? Anyway, we've never actually been inside (always delivery) but in passing it looks like a very small takeout place with maybe a few stools inside.
Hope you enjoy the pics:
Here is a cross section of my sirloin burger ($8.25). They are all served on toasted Portugese muffins and cooked to medium, just the way I like them. They come with lettuce, tomatoes and grilled onions, but I asked to have them left off and got sharp cheddar instead for $1.00 extra.
A first shot of my sirloin burger.
My gf's turkey burger ($8.25) with lettuce, tomatoes and grilled onions.
Our friend's Kobe beef burger ($9.00) with lettuce, tomatoes and sharp cheddar (which is very well hidden in this pic, sorry).
We all ordered them medium and everyone was very happy with them. Moist, juicy and just a really good beefy flavor (except for the turkey burger, of course)!
This next part is another thing I really like about them. Their mixed fries ($4.75). A side of regular and sweet potato fries that do get a wee bit soggy in transport, to be expected, but do retain a good level of crispiness, just leave a touch of grease on the fingers and have an excellent potato flavor. They don't salt them, which I like as it allows me to control how much salt goes in me and I really do taste the true potato flavor first. I highly recommend these!!
