Hamburger Special at Colador Cafe, Dish #97
Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.
The hamburger is a brawny 9 oz patty, hand patted and cooked like you'd to it yourself. The bun is good, the foliage presumably good for you, and the heap of decent fries on the side lightly battered, but not any worse for that. I swear.
Northwest Bed-Suy's Colador Cafe is convivial, and serve-yourself, and a feeling of fine nonchalance prevails.
The burger, with a free can of Genesee Cream Ale, is a bargain at $9.50 all-in cost.
Colador Cafe 1000 Bedford Avenue Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn 718-399-1933
