*CLOSED FOR BUSINESS 2012*
Went to an excellent art opening last night at Tamarind showcasing my new favorite contemporary artist Mahjabin Mahjumdar. A Bengali beauty, she produces large canvases filled with her face as the backdrop to color, texture and the interplay between nature, animals, dream and past-life imagery. Frida Kahlo seemed to be an influence.
Afterwards, we went for a casual diner at Better Burger . At the last food show I attended, the Brandt boys said they were privately supplying meat for the chain but soon it would be labeled as such. And lo, last night the classic burger said “Brandt Beef”.
I had a well-done burger, no bun, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle and BB’s baked fries which are too good. And since no deep fryer, no cross-contamination to worry about. It was still greasy, in that yummy burger way, and very filling for a humid summer night. Truthfully, all I wanted was a salad so I was overly full. Maybe next time I’ll try a turkey dog and salad, that is if they’ll show me the package with the ingredients.
In sum: I wouldn’t go every night, cos it’s still a burger with fries but for an organic/natural/no fried treat every now and then, yeah, I'll be there.
