Island Burger -- New Menu
- Dave Feldman Jul 24, 1999 01:57 AM
For the first time in memory, Island Burger on 9th
Ave. has changed its menu. Many new burger/chicken
sandwiches (but they kept most of my old favorites)
and although there are still no fries, but baked
potatoes are now on the menu.
The food, limited as it is, is as good as ever.
You of course know that you can place your order and
then zip out to the Pluck U. Chicken take-out 2 doors
north to pick up an order of their very excellent
fries to go with your very excellent Island Burger!
They are completely copacetic at Island B. about you
doing this. In fact, it was their suggestion the first
time we went there.
It IS perverse that they don't serve fries, don't you
think? They always mumble something about proper
ventilation, but jeez - a burger place without fries
is like a donut place without coffee!
I always thought they should have a runner to go to
Pluck U. for you, but it gives you something to do
while you're waiting for your order.

Gee, I think it's sacriligious to eat fries at Island
Burger. Will has to be one of the coolest owners in
the universe, and I especially love that the running
that goes on between I.B. and the bar next door.
By the way, the new menu includes an apocryphal
explanation of the lack of fries in the place.
I figure I get plenty of fat in my Bourbon Street
churrasco. The no-fries policy is a gift to my

I think it's sacriligious NOT to eat fries with such a
fabulous burger, plus going next door for them was
their idea. I never would've had the nerve,
otherwise! I do try to resist, in order to keep the
fat intake down, but I don't have a burger there that
often, so sometimes you gotta go the whole nine
yards! On the other hand, Ive never dared try one of
the famed shakes...
