Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

even though I don't possess the 100+-year-old custom vertical cast-iron gas broilers or vertical wire-rack toaster that enhance the vintage aura and flavor of the ultra-classic hamburgers at the legendary Louis Lunch in New Haven, I have nevertheless learned to reverse-engineer the process and I use this arcana to make a wicked facsimile of the Louis Lunch cheeseburger with the works at home.  (Louis Lunch actually uses Cheez Whiz and I've made them this way before but these days I use good old Kraft singles, it's not strictly necessary to deal with the cheese spread.) Louis Lunch is notorious for not permitting any condiments whatsoever on its burgers, and they don't have any in the restaurant, and in the old days the wonderfully irascible proprietor would routinely blow his stack at sacrilegious newbies who asked for ketchup.  All the old New Haven people know what I'm talking about, and to this day I abjure the condiments in honor of the late, great Ken Lassen.

Last night I made one of these at home and decided to accompany it with a homemade soda, my favorite flavor, cherry red:

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

I've been thinking of this venerable, now-shuttered shrine of short-order cooking all day:

http://forums.roadfood.com/insider-photos/11065.jpg

Michael Stern wrote this about the Yankee Doodle:

"The beloved Doodle ... was a New Haven institution that one assumed never would close (like the late, lamented George & Harry's).

Having spent a few very happy years living one block away from the Doodle, a mere whiff of this old greasy spoon is ... like Marcel Proust coming across a carton of madeleines at his local Costco. Everything good at Yankee Doodle Sandwich Shop spends time on the griddle: bacon, eggs, hamburgers, even a New Haven notoriety known as a grilled donut, which is an ordinary sinker sliced in half, buttered and then grilled to a crisp. We love Yankee Doodle's hamburgers, especially the Dandy Doodle Double-Double Cheeseburger, on a hard roll with lettuce and tomato, onions, and bacon and always an extra pat of butter melting on the top half of the bun; but the item that won our hearts at the counter of this fast-food beacon just off the Yale campus is the Yankee Doodle Pig in a Blanket. We were first attracted to it by a sign above the counter that described the ingredients – a frankfurter, melted cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce, the sign concluding with the directive: "YOU WILL HAVE MORE!"

Here is how a pig is made: a blubbery little frankfurter is slit and stuffed with cheese, then wrapped with bacon and cooked on the griddle until the dog blisters, the cheese melts, and the bacon is crisp. The Sunday-go-to-Meeting tube steak is slapped into a toasted and buttered bun and sold for a couple of dollars. We won't tell you it is the greatest hot dog known to mankind, nor even in the top ten; but no American eater's life can be considered well-lived if it lacks the experience of sitting at the Yankee Doodle counter and ingesting a brace of pigs."

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

Johnsonville brats for lunch today. Chicken tacos with goat cheese for dinner. That's the plan, at least. Frothy ale as well.

Re: Coffee bars, diners, forgotten roadside eateries

was here yesterday and I showed near-superhuman restraint by only having one chili cheese dog, that's pretty good don't you think?:

thanks for posting this Woof, I might have missed it otherwise, the main diner discussed in the article, the legendary, now-defunct, Joe, Jr.'s on Sixth Ave. in the West Village, was my local during the decades I lived in NYC and I miss it like crazy ....

I knew what to order at Joe, Jr.'s (cheeseburger, fresh lemonade, BLT, freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, milkshakes, grilled cheese with bacon and tomato, french fries, cheese and onion omelette) and it was my #1 favorite place in the city, and I'm not interested in whatever replaced it .......

several other places I used to eat at regularly were mentioned in the article as well, including the venerable Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop, which has many fans and some detractors but was always great for me as a local, and there I always got freshly made tuna fish sandwiches, Reubens, or chicken salad, all on rye, or a BLT on white toast, and to drink I always ordered a black and white egg cream, which was expertly mixed by this friendly toothless counterman ... I greeted him cordially the first time I went there and earned myself free refills thereafter, so that place was aces in my book too ......
