Deep in the far reaches of Fishtown lies Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen. Since it’s a little bit out of the way of most things, I decided to make a day of it with a mini bar crawl through the Fishtown neighborhood, with my prize to be a burger at Cedar Point at the end. Unfortunately, all that buildup led to a burger disappointment.
The burger is a Grass-fed beef patty topped with pimiento aioli, Herdsman cheese, and caramelized onions, served on brioche bun flecked with poppy seeds.
While the presentation of the burger was great and the house-cut fries were spectacular, the burger – requested to be cooked medium – was overcooked at well done. And as I continued to eat, I quickly ran out of burger while I still had an ample amount of bun left. I really wanted to like this burger, especially after my Fishtown adventure. Maybe I will take another trip out there sometime to see if maybe it was just an off night or what; they also have a brunch burger with an egg on it that sounds tempting!
