A burger king, from Market Bistro in Jericho
There are plenty of reasons to enjoy a casual meal at Market Bistro in Jericho. My latest addition: the "mb burger."
This combination of dry-aged rib-eye, Kobe-style brisket and short rib yields one of the juiciest burgers between Great Neck and Montauk. Order yours as rare as you like.
It's finished with garlic aioli and served with hand-cut fries. Cost: $15. For a dollar each, you may gild it with blue cheese, Gruyere and/or bacon. I suggest the last two.
You may precede the burger with a tasty flatbread capped with blue cheese, pancetta, Bartlett pear and arugula. Or just start with bison sliders and get into the mood early.
