Five Lamps Tavern

Five Lamps Tavern is a new addition to the upper west side and a good addition it is.
Not only do they have amazing burgers, they have a 75 seat beer garden in the back - yay!  

The first night we visited, it was packed but we managed to find seats at the bar (it was a little chilly for outdoor seating). We ordered a couple of beers and looked over the menu, which is pretty small but also understandable for a brand new restaurant. Hopefully they'll expand the menu as they mature. 

My husband ordered the classic burger...and loved it. The fries were awesome too! 

Brooklyn Blend, soft lettuce, tomato, red onion, house rémoulade.  
Served with IPA Fries

The first thing on the menu that caught my eye was the grilled salmon BLT...grilled salmon fillet, bacon, romaine, tomato, toasted fennel rémoulade, country bread, served with IPA fries. I must not have been alone, because by the time we put our order in they were sold out of the salmon. 

In a spur of the moment decision I went with the 5LT ended up being an excellent choice! 

12 oz cajun-crusted, house blend with 
slab bacon & Roquefort, lettuce, tomato, red onion. 
Served with IPA Fries

I LOVED this burger!  It's right up there with my all time favorites. 

Still in first place is Rocky's in San Diego...

The 5LT burger is definitely a stand out and one of the best burgers I've had in a long time! The bacon and roquefort are mixed into the patty and they add such an amazing difference to the burger. I like my burgers looks pretty pink in the picture but it was done perfectly and so juicy that the bottom bun didn't hold up to the challenge. 

Last weekend we went back to Five Lamps for brunch and everyone had the classic burger (unfortunately the 5LT isn't on the brunch menu, and they wouldn't make the We had a great time and the food was excellent, again. 

We'll certainly be back for many more enjoyable experiences at Five Lamps, and maybe next time I'll try something other than a burger!
