So he gets 1 ounce. That leaves 6 ounces to be split between 3 people. Two ounces of burger for dinner.

Is it really valid for a non-steakhouse to sell a burger that takes a family to finish?  How are customers supposed to know not to order it if they're not splitting it three or four ways (not that anyone at the bar with me was splitting it three or four ways) (I liked that bar:  the other burger-eaters made me look svelt)?  Why do that?  Why not just serve a fucking burger?

 

Let me try to put this in a way that sounds less antagonistic.

 

It seems to me that if you need a crew to finish a burger, it ceases being a burger.  It's exaggerated into something else.

Sounds like a version of the boards where smashed well-done patties are the definition of a burger, and Minetta style burgers are considered to have stopped being a burger, plus Sneak not being hungry that early.  :P

I've been living burgers and I've narrowed it down to 4 or 5 styles of burgers. All are legitimate all have their pros and cons.

The Emily burger is a pro. It's a big fatty burger.' Bring a friend

I think another, and perhaps more accurate, way to put it is that now, places aren't trying to serve good burgers.  They're trying to serve The Best Burger.  But in so doing, they're overloading what is in essence a very simple dish.

 

(And I'll repeat, fanboy that I am, that I think the McNally places avoid this pitfall.)

 

Agree with all this. The Exaggerated Burger.

 

I'd underline the richness problem.  People have tried to differentiate their burgers by adding pork belly or chorizo to the patty, by topping them with bone marrow or absurdly rich sauces, and by mounting them on huge, glistening brioche buns.  The result, to me, is just overwhelming and ultimately aversive.

 

That's my most common complaint against "chef" burgers these days.  Followed by the fact they then fall apart and have to be eaten with a soup spoon.

The Emily monster.  Restrained on the fries, apparently.

They do themselves a disservice.

The way the burger is served is on a metal tray, not a plate, with a shit-ton of fries.

I grabbed the photo from Infatuation, which usually flatters restaurants.  There are probably others out there.

You can tell it's from the Infatuation because they always shoot food photos so wide open (i.e., with the biggest possible aperture) that there's only a tiny silver in focus.  Here, the in focus portion is two french fries, half the X on the bun, and maybe some of the cheese?  Hard to tell.

To be clear, my problem with this burger isn't that it's too big.  It's that it's too rich.
