The small restaurant is owned by Christopher Wong, who also operates the Breakroom, a burger spot at 83 Baxter St. in Chinatown. The burgers are made with Pat LaFrieda meat, buns from Parisi Bakery and pickles from the Pickle Guys, Wong’s Essex Street neighbor. We’ve posted the full menu below. A cheeseburger will cost you $6. The bacon cheeseburger (pictured above) is $8. There’s also a turkey burger, roast pork and fried chicken sandwiches and a cheese steak sandwich.
Wong grew up in the neighborhood, His family has for many years run the New Kam Hing Bakery on Baxter Street. He remembers hanging out in the playground across the street next to Seward Park (during a time when no one could possibly imagine gourmet burgers being served on the LES).
