Last night my buddies, Ross and Urbanos, met me at the Black Iron Burger Shop in the East Village. Ross, Matt and I decided to do a guy night, grab some burgers and catch up on all things work, play and potential. We all worked together back in the Digitas days. Matt is now at Scholastic and Ross is at Modem Media. Our meetings are always packed full of information and I usually leave with my brain and stomach satiated. The first time I was in this place, just grabbing their card, it was dead. This time it was packed to the gills. The menu was very simply, a few burgers a patty melt and a couple of side options. The burger leaned on the fast food side, not particularly my style. We ordered 3 black iron burgers, some fries and baked beans. Of everything, I have to say, the beans were the best. The burger was a little greasy and overcooked. It was definitely a sloppy burger. Considering the crowd and the quality, I don’t think I will be back anytime soon. A glimpse of positivity was the cute and helpful Australian waitress who was quick and correct with our order.
