Goodbye to the Buyback

I don’t remember the upside down shot glass, (or the term buyback,) but getting one “on the house” every third or fourth round was standard back in the day when we hung out at bars like MiLady’s or Barnabas Rex, ordering beers. I get a free glass of wine sometimes at South Brooklyn Foundry, if the server knows me, or the owner’s around to tell them; at Brooklyn Beet Co, where I’m a regular, they don’t buy me any, but they always give me a very generous pour. Yes, I tip well.

They finally started taking reservations, and because that meant I wouldn't have to wait in line for three hours, I went to Au Cheval, the much hyped Chicago burger restaurant. Nice room. Super buzz (too much for me but I'm old.) Cool location in Cortlandt Alley. But "best burger in America"? No. It's a good burger, sure. Fries are quite good. Fried bologna sandwich sounds interesting in a low brow hipster way although we all had the burger so I can't say for sure. Nothing specific to complain about but it didn't knock my socks off. Doubt I'll go back except maybe if I had someone in from out of town and I thought they might like a fancy burger restaurant in a cool graffiti-fied back alley in Tribeca. It's almost like if Universal Studios did an NYC amusement park, this would be the cool downtown burger place in it. But again, I guess I'm old.
