Tasty Tuesdays: A Mid-Summer’s Night Out

Every now and then the chef just needs a break from the kitchen.  We all like to be waited on once and while.  And, let’s be honest, nothing is better than having no clean up!  That said, I’ll introduce you one of Miss Fancy Boots (and my) favorite places on a beautiful day.

The perfect way to spend sunset on a summer evening.

Pier i Cafe

  • The “i” Burger with Old Bay seasoned fries
  • Casear Salad
  • Hebrew National Hot Dog with Sauerkraut and Old Bay seasoned fries
  • Pitcher of Sam Adams Summer Ale
What are the keys that make this place so good?  First, that burger is a 1/4 lb of Pat LaFrieda beef, which means it’s high quality, juicy and therefore tasty.  You can get it with either a nice slice of cheddar or some delicious crumbled blue cheese (which I highly recommend).  You can never go wrong with Old Bay fries so they need no further explanation.  The salad was surprisingly crisp and fresh and I could imagine being quite filling with some grilled chicken laid on top.  What makes a good hot dog is the sum of its parts.  In this case, the Hebrew National is 100% beef, which means (besides being kosher) it just tastes better.  Wash it all down with the unofficial beer of summer in Sam Adams Summer Ale and you’re all set to sip away while the sun sets across the river.

Until next time, Cheers!

About Jeremy

Born and raised in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, Jeremy grew up with the sand between his toes and the sun shining on his skin all year long. A "student of the game" in both baseball and golf, he wishes he had more time to enjoy them up in the Big Apple. A somewhat recent graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, more fondly called Virginia Tech, his studies yielded two bachelor's degrees. The first a B.S. in Human Resource Management and the second a B.A. in Public and Non-Profit Management. While he misses Blacksburg, the Home of the Hokies, he's embraced a new life in New York, where as Mr. Sinatra says, "... if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere." He currently works for New York City's premier volunteer organization, planning customized corporate service projects.
