After reading several recommendations for Blue Collar, my wife and I decided to stop by for lunch on our way to the airport. We were both glad that we did. This restaurant reminded me of the American version of the trattoria that I used to frequent in Florence. It was simple comfort food exceptionally prepared in an unpretentious and comfortable setting. The prefect place to experience comfort food elevated above normal diner fare.
To start, we shared an order of the Mac with bacon. The pasta was cooked perfectly al dente and cheesy sauce was well paired with thick cut bacon. This simple dish was a example of how Daniel Serfer transforms classic comfort food into a speculator culinary experience.
I decided to order the Real Juicy Cheeseburger. The name is not hyperbole. The prime dry aged NY strip was by far the juiciest and most flavorful hamburger that I have ever had. It was perfectly cooked and simply seasoned to allow the exquisite flavor of the beef to shine. The Portuguese Muffin on which the burger was served was another simple change that elevated the simple hamburger to new culinary heights. This is a must try for any hamburger lover or just someone looking for a satisfying meal. This will be the hamburger against which all others will be measured, and most likely found wanting.
My wife had a similarly well prepared grilled cheese sandwich. Again the tender texture of the Portuguese Muffin served as the perfect base for this exquisite classic. The blend of cheeses and the addition of bacon combined into a spectacular comfort food.
