The Early Word: Mark's Sliders

Maybe the recession is slowly on its way out, but the great regression continues: Spiked milkshakes, tater tots, macaroni and cheese, and fried chicken are apparently all anyone wants to eat. Mark, a new milkshake-pie-fries-sliders place on St. Mark's place, opened last week and is obviously angling for that comfort food sweet spot. The menu is short, listing sliders with cheese and onions--bacon optional--pecan pie, fries, and milkshakes, including one made with Guinness. The sliders are the junky sort--a thin patty of slightly dry but robustly flavored beef augmented with burnt onions and goopy American cheese, piled on a very squishy bun. At $2 each, the mini-burgers are worth a try if you happen to be walking by and need comforting. The whole place smells like pecan pie.
