I think it is so funny that they would not serve bread, but did serve your friend a cheeseburger! Go back and have the pastrami on rye. It's just wrong to have pastrami on matzoh!!



We will definitely go after reading your review even if just for the cheeseburger, Nu, so who knew ?

There is only one deli in our hearts and that is the Carnegie. The cheesecake is without a doubt the best on the planet.
Their recipe is on their website and I made it twice.


This sounds great! Although I doubt one can find a burger with smoked duck in NYC!


Audrey- As you can tell from the pictures, even the burger did not have bread. Luckily, French people are used to "steak haché," and the lack of bread did not make a bit of difference!


If you want the best burger in Paris, definitely go to Bugsy's, rue Montalivet in the 8th.
I think I've tried pretty much all places where they serve burgers and this one is by far the best I've had.


You may be right, but if you go to DB Bistro you can get a burger stuffed with fois gras and short ribs!


I think Audrey's point wasn't that the burger was served on matzah, but that a cheeseburger is inherently unkosher! Surely as a New Yorker you know that?? Never mind!


Natasha- Thanks for the heads up! I did know that, but I didn't make the connection.
