Cat Cora is a goddess in the culinary world and if I'm dining at her restaurant, I'm expecting food of the gods. Unfortunately arriving at the airport at 9 PM, I found them closing shop so I wasn't able to dine at Cora's until the return layover.
The prices are unquestionably on the high side with the most expensive dish of Lobster Mac & Cheese listed at $31.
The Burger arrives with a plate of appetizing orange side of sweet potato fries which provide an immediate aesthetic impact. I had ordered the burger medium and it arrived medium to medium well. The bun is too dense and heavy and its texture dominated especially in the first few bites. The first few bites also provided a good grilled flavor. The onion flavor stood out while the cheese flavor was masked. The tomato provided moistness which was missing from the meat. The patty was bland and dry leading me to believe it consisted of a leaner albeit healthier cut of beef. My belief is that a burger should be eaten as it arrives without adding salt, ketchup, etc. representing the vision of the chef/cook. However in this case with the burger being flat, I added ketchup, mustard, and mayo to give the burger a little more zing.
- Bun: Grilled brioche. Bun to meat ratio is too heavy in favor of the bun.
- Toppings: Red leaf lettuce, tomato, Bermuda onion with ketchup, mayo, and mustard on the side
- Cheese: Cheddar? It was mild
- Meat: Certified Angus
- Price: $15.00. Ouch.
- Rating: 8.3
Service was very professional and friendly. My waiter tacitly understand time was of the essence.
