WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER AT... is a recurring column designed in kind for your opinionated asses and our lazy asses. We're going to pick one Park Slope resto a week and recommend our favorite dish at each. Are we right? Are we wrong? YOU KNOW YOU WANNA WEIGH IN.
Question: how many drunken nights have you ended up at The Dram Shop, wanting to get above-average bar food to soak up all of the poison you poured down your throat in the previous hours?
Answer: Many, if you're someone like me, who literally said to a waitress this weekend, "Can I have two shots of jager and the check please?"
What The Dram Shop (339 9th St. between Fifth and Sixth Aves, 718-788-1444) lacks in its cramped quarters and loud music, it makes up for in spades with it's delicious menu. Irish Nachos, fried mac and cheese, half-moon tostadas—they're all good, but I think everyone would agree that YOU'VE GOTTA GET THE BURGER.
Two handmade "beef squares" are topped with shredded lettuce, tomato, diced onions, pickles, mayo, and mustard, and piled on a fresh sesame seed bun. Served in a greasy basket with a pile of handcut fries, this shit might be the best $10 you spent at 2AM.
