The title has got you thinking: what business does a fish restaurant have making burgers?? And awesome ones, at that? If you have been to Lure Fishbar in Soho, you would say they have every damn right to serve burgers and can withhold service from anyone who feels otherwise…and they wouldn’t be out of line. The “Lure Style” burger has to be one of the juiciest, tastiest burgers I’ve had in a while – perfectly cooked, perfectly adorned, and topped with two perfectly crisp onions rings. Are you getting this yet? Perfect perfect perfect. Keep up the good work, Lure, and no pressure whatsoever.
For those of you who like details, the Lure Style burger with “the works” is very similar to a Big Mac (and tastes kind of like it too, in a good way, I promise); lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, tomato, and some form of special sauce. I like to call it “magic sauce”.
PS – the sushi here is pretty good too, but that’s not as important right now..

I was really waiting for the “it’s also topped with salmon roe and bonito!”, but it never came. And I’m really okay with that. I have no idea how you’d eat this, but it sure does look good.
