There are four burgers that you must demolish at The Bailey (52 William Street). All are worth your time during the midday break with a side of draft beer or a stiff drink, and they are particularly suited for anyone looking to drift gracefully into a blissful weekend of sloth. Get a head start on selecting your next juicy indulgence now.
1. The Bailey Burger
The Bailey burger is a classic concoction but anything but basic: Swiss, cheddar or blue cheese is melted over a patty and topped with red onion, dill pickle, lettuce and tomato. Hand-cut fries, obviously, act as a perfect sidekick ($19).
2. The Bull Burger
This all-natural, cornfed Brandy beef proprietary blend also gets a side of hand-cut fries. But the whole get-up is brought together by the delectable aforementioned black truffle mayo — it’s a new obsession for the Alliance and should also be yours ($22).
3. The Double Burger
There’s a southern slant to this burger — and extra meat: Two patties get slathered with American cheese before being sandwiched with buttermilk slaw, barrel pickles and, if that’s not enough, bacon. Plus, of course, those hand-cut fries ($22).
4. The Turkey Burger
See? There’s something for all carnivorous palates at The Bailey. Bonus points if you have enough room to order the delicious, perfectly spiced guacamole on the side.
