Last night I went to Irving Mill, a restaurant in Gramercy with Chef Ryan Skeen (Resto) at the helm. The reason I went was because I have heard great things about their burger and have had the desire to try it for a while now. Last night my craving was satisfied.

The burger ($15), made with beef cheek, bivette steak, and a little bit of pork fat, was perfectly cooked medium, and very good. It did not blow my mind, but it was a definitely a good burger. The meat tasted different from your average burger. The fries were in a need of salt and crispiness, and were not great. 



After the burger, I contemplated ordering something else from Skeen’s ‘porkcentric’ menu, and after Aaron the bartender stated that the salt and pepper pork ribs ($8) were “mind-blowing”, I had to order them. I am not known to pass up “mind-blowing” food (What diet??). 

The ribs were mind-blowing! The marinate was delicious and the flavor was perfect. The meat fell right off the bone and I loved them! In fact, I enjoyed the ribs, more then the burger!


I’ll def. be coming back to Irving Mill to try the rest of the menu, and for those ribs!
