Not all burgers are created equal and to test this theory I decided to stop by a burger-centric eatery rumored to be one of the best in the city, F. Ottomanelli Burgers & Belgian Fries in Woodside, NY.
What makes F. Ottomenneli’s different?
Fresh never Frozen
The one thing Frank knows is quality meat. Coming from a long history of family butchers, Frank brings the same quality of beef to his burgers. Across the street, every morning at the Ottomanelli Butcher Shop, the butcher prepares the days beef patties. The patties are made from fresh cuts of prime meat. Nothing is ever frozen and there are no additives or fillers added. All you get is the freshest burger that you can find in New York City.
Built in Flavor
While most burger joints add the toppings on top, F.Ottomannelli’s does things a little differently. Here the seasonings and toppings are ground into the burger. What you get is a burger with the cheese, bacon or jalapeños cooked right in infusing flavor into every bite.
If you have never tried a Belgian French Fry, you are missing out on the best way to eat a potato. The secret is the double cooking process which allows for a crisp outside and a tender inside.
To top off the fries (or burger), F. Ottomanelli’s offers a variety of dipping sauces from bacon ranch to chipotle to barbeque. So skip the ketchup and opt for a few different sauces. My suggestion is the truffle mayo or sriracha (if you like it spicy).
If you are vegan, there are options for you as well. Frank does not skimp on the quality of his veggie burgers either. They are not factory purchased but made fresh and delivered, never frozen. What you get is a thick, flavorful veggie burger that even a “beef lover” would enjoy.
