All my dating profile says is that "I hate cats, I love burgers" because, you know, that really tells you a lot about a person. Despite Taylor Swift's efforts, cat people are weird, and there is no way a hard-core carnivore could end up dating a vegetarian or, even worse, a vegan. Luckily I live in a city that is essentially a mecca for burger joints and enthusiasts like myself. Not one to let an opportunity pass me by, I created this column as an excuse to eat burgers on a weekly basis and tell you about my favorites. Since I am not a food critic and rather just a fashion girl who loves a good piece of red meat, I figured I'd shake things up and give you Burgers N' Bling -- accessory features with a side of beef.
THE HOUSE BURGER @ FREEHOLD, $10
45 S. 3rd Street, Brooklyn, NY 11249
Created by chef Michael Boulous, the best part of this burger is how juicy it is. I actually wasn't able to dive in for about fifteen minutes since I was snapping all these pics and it still tasted as juicy and delicious as if it had just come off the grill. Pickled anything is a salty dream, so the addition of pickled onions to this otherwise very classic version of America's favorite take it to the next level. Partnered with the fact that you can enjoy it in Freehold's killer backyard and it comes with fries, this burger is a must try for some fall fun. And because burgers are more fun with friends, I recruited my babe Kathleen Bily, Head Designer at Lulu Frost, to frost us in jewels for this shoot.
