Last night Brooklyn Yelp hit up Bay Ridge's Burger Bistro for a blast of a backyard bash! The night started off a little chilly, but the Bistro heated up fast once everyone arrived and started jamming out to our old favorites, Roosevelt Dime.
The amazing staff of the bistro of burgers brought out a stream of fantastic food that didn't stop all night. Brooklyn's finest yelpers got to scarf down smaller versions of the kitchen's acclaimed eats, including cheeseburger nachos, tuna tartare, smoked salmon, frizzled onions and fries with decadent dipping sauces like the irresistible chipotle mayo…and of course, THE BURGERS. There were sausage burgers, and waffle burgers, and Kobe burgers, and steak burgers, and DONUT burgers, and my personal favorite, bacon cheeseburgers.
It wouldn't have been a proper backyard BBQ without the huge bucket of beer in the corner! Blue Point's Summer suds were on hand, and of course Original Sin was served for those with cider in mind. Honest Tea provided everyone with a refreshing, non-alcoholic option, and kept the night cool. We must have been having too good a time, as a noise complaint kept the band from their second set, but the party definitely didn't stop there! Nobody thought they had room left for dessert, until s'mores, tiramisu and ICE CREAM SANDWICHES started pouring out of the kitchen. I'm still full thinking about it.
A huge thank you goes out to The Burger Bistro's staff, especially John, Vin and Jason for welcoming the Yelp Elite with open arms. Whether or not you made it out, be sure to check out the pictures and the reviews! I heard at least one yelper who wanted to live at the Bistro; all I know is that It's a good thing summer's here, because I'm looking to camp out in that backyard permanently too.
