Hangover Cure

After our wine party last night I wasn't feeling so hot today. We were craving a burger from J.G. Melon, which has the best burger. Period.

We've been to Corner Bistro too and I just don't think it's as good as Melons. Anyway, the effort needed to get to the UES was non-existent so we mustered up the energy to get off the couch and go to Water Street Restaurant.

We've been here a handful of times and there are some things they do really well and others they don't. Two of the things they do well are burgers (not like Melons, but definitely good) and they have a crispy (read=fried) sandwich. It was actually pretty busy, but they had one poor guy taking orders for the entire restaurant.

They had some nice live music too, but of course we got the last table right next to the stage so we couldn't hear each other, which was actually OK too because we were useless and considered getting newspapers so we didn't have to talk to each other. NOT because anything is going wrong, but just because we were shot and it was hard to hold an interesting conversation. Luckily, the girls next to us were having a pretty spicy conversation that was fun to listen to and the singer from the band was hitting on all of them.

So the conclusion is that burgers are great for hangovers and if you're in DUMBO, try the one from Water Street Restaurant. And if you're up for a little mission, go to Melons.
