We couldn't just sit on our hands and keep this from you.
Beer & Buns, a new "burger bar" in Midtown, is now open — and putting every conceivable kind of meat between bread.
The pièce de résistance? A $250 edible monument to excess composed of Kobe beef, foie gras sautéed in Sauternes, white truffles, and beluga caviar; all tucked between a house-made bun.
But maybe you don't want to blow the price of a single Bruno Magli loafer on a burger. For the 99 percent, there is the "D.C. White House," made from beef marinated in soy and olive oil.
Then there's sliders that don't quite count as burgers at all: lemongrass shrimp, fried grouper, tandoori chicken, Korean short ribs... you get the idea. It's a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? of global flavors.
Oh, we almost forgot about the beer. With only 20 bottles, you don't have a ton of options, but they are as international as the sliders: Brazil's dark Xingu, Bellhaven Black Scottish Stout, Chang lager from Thailand... you get the idea.
Good luck figuring out what pairs best with your foie.
