Before we go any further, let’s make one thing clear: the King of Burgers of which we are about to speak should not in any way, shape or form to be confused with the freaky-deaky, goateed, plastic-face, grade-D-meat-slinging “Burger King.” The true royal title goes to Pat LaFrieda. For generations, Pat LaFrieda has been synonymous with top-quality meats and burgers, with the price tags to match. Their mouth-watering meat patties are proudly served at fine NYC institutions like Minetta Tavern, The Spotted Pig, Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack, Blue Smoke and more recently and even at the Mets’ stadium, Citi Field. But hold onto your hats, dear gents, because we have fabulous news for you. You can die and go to burger heaven in your very own kitchen with Pat LaFrieda Burger Blends ($40.00+). They ain’t cheap, but they’re worth it, with blends like the Original, Brisket, Short Rib, Lamb and the transcendent Dry-Aged Original Burger Blend. Bust out your Grillworks 36, slap on your Royal VKB Apron (or your Inflatable Tentacle Arm if you’re feeling feisty) and give your dinner guests the royal LaFrieda treatment. This is as kingly as it gets between two buns.
