Today I was planning to discuss evolutionary biology, instead I will keep the discussion on hamburgers. Robb and I headed again to the East Side this time to the Murry Hill-ish area to check out the burgers from Molly's at 287 3rd Ave (Btwn 22nd & 23rd St). It is an Irish Pub through and through with sawdust on the floors, dim lighting, and a combo of Irish & Country music on the jukebox.

Our 10oz. Cheeseburger, as it is listed on the menu, is a thick patty pub style burger with a choice of American, Swiss, Mozzarella or Blue Cheese served with a whole dill pickle, onions, lettuce, & tomato on the side and one item of french fries, potato salad, mashed potatoes or onion rings. These burgers are big ones with a slightly chard outside and a juicy inside cooked as requested to medium. While I don't have anything negative to say about the sandwich, because it was decent, there was also nothing memorable to bring me back. In the end it may be more this style of burger is less to my liking and why I seem to be missing that wow factor I have heard so much about. The food served up to other patrons looked outstanding and far superior than traditional bar food. The rest of the menu includes salads, chicken, steak & fish along with more traditional Irish staples and may warrant a return visit. Go4Kb.

OK, Tranquilo's comment was a bit ridiculous but the burger does look a bit rare. The cook clearly doesn't undertand what medium means.
