The time has come. Gotham Burger Social Club officially opens to the public on Wednesday January 10th at 131 Essex Street on the Lower East Side. The menu includes favorites like the single and double Gotham Smash Burgers, and The Beastie Boy, a triple Gotham smash burger. Sides include fries, onion rings, tots, loaded tots and “frickles,” fried pickles. Leading the restaurant is burger maestro Mike Puma (pictured lower right) who started making burgers as a hobby, then as pop-ups and the rest is burger history!
