I heard about Press' new hamburger a few months back and my first chance to try it occurred with Bez during the holiday break. At first I was a little perplexed because hamburgers aren't listed on the menu yet, but our waitress let me know they do have them, they're just off the menu. I love ordering things off the menu, it makes me feel "in" and "knowledgeable". The burgers are 'pressed' just like all their other sandwiches, and come with all the fixings, including their chipotle mayo, already placed on the burger. Since I'm a control-freak, I got the mayo on the side. The burger was juicy, but the meat could have benefited from more seasoning. The bun also got soaked and soggy a little past 3/4ths through 1/2 (what is that? 3/8ths?), which is not my ideal bun situation. Though it may not be voted best burger in the city, it is quite welcome in my nabe.
Gratuitous shot of their outrageous fries; the burgers do come with a side of fries
