The Beach Haven Fishery: Black Cowboy Burger
Where: Beach Haven Fishery, Long Beach Island, NJ
What: The Black Cowboy Burger
Build: 1/2 pound blackened 100% black Angus beef, huge onion ring, chipotle/sun dried tomato mayo, American/blue cheese blend, butter toasted ciabatta roll.
Comment: I was told I now have "kitchen rights" and was invited into the kitchen to see this master piece (among other dishes) being built. It is another award winning combo of flavors from the BHF kitchen. Chef Mike, aka "Magic Mike" blew my doors off with this burger. I usually never order anything blackend because the flavor of the rub is always too overpowering for me but Chef Mike said it was good and he hasn't been wrong yet. The American/blue cheese blend worked great too, but the onion ring was a stroke of genius. This is no minor league ring, this is a large, thick cut onion battered perfectly and the fact that only one was on the burger made all the difference because it did not overpower any other flavor. A generous dollop of their homemade chipotle/sun dried tomato mayo on that toasted roll and all bets were off, this is an award winner... damn it was good.... even counter girl, Lauren got in on the action. 10/10
