Eat A Famous Fried Burger From Korzo Before Getting Hardcore At Freddy's Bar
If you’re a burger junkie, you must experience Korzo. This Eastern European restaurant offers some delicious options on their menu—including their Korzobello (with grilled portobello, Edam, bryndza, emmentaler, spicy garlic emulsion, baby arugula, and fire-roasted peppers on potato onion bread) and shrimp-spring herb cakes (with spicy avocado mousse)—but the main draw here is their fried burger. Whether you go old-school with the “original” or decide to branch out and try one of their specialities, like the B’klyn Beet (with a roasted beet-walnut black eyed pea patty, baby gouda, caramelized onions, pickled something, and dressed market greens), you’ll be legitimately mesmerized by their wildly inventive fried burger coated in a langoš “bun” that the Village Voice once called the “best burger in NYC.”
Fancy some unapologetic quirk? After dinner, quench your thirst at Freddy’s Bar, a Park Slope favorite that goes all-in on creative decor, live entertainment, and some daring cocktails that aren’t afraid of being a bit hardcore (see: their I Drink Anyway and O’Finn which are essentially just tall glasses of vodka and John Powers Irish whiskey, respectively). And once you’ve really taken in their eclectic style—with a plethora of scattered road and neon signs, wooden bones propped over the bar, and a mish-mash of reclaimed, multi-colored wood plastered over its entrance—the nightly live music (which is free of charge) gives this dive its added edge.
