A small burger and hot dog chain in New York City, Clarke’s Standard offers fresh food in an old-fashioned, farm-meets-diner atmosphere. The menu is pretty simple: a burger in a handful of configurations as well as a chicken sandwich and a NY Standard hot dog. You can accompany your meal with regular or sweet potato fries.
There are a variety of condiment pumps to top off your meal. But nothing extreme here – don’t look for mushrooms or melted cheese stations or designer mustards.
The NY Standard hot dog comes drenched in Three-Onion Red Sauce. They weren’t kidding – there were large chunks of onion in the sauce and it had a little kick to it. The fries were crispy and generous.
For dessert you can have a milk shake or a cup of Little Clarke’s ice cream. The latter is served complete with a traditional wooden spoon. The ice cream comes from a farm in Massachusetts.
As an added convenience, Clarke’s will deliver from any of its five locations and you can order online via seamless.com.
