I have realized that I'm a purist when it comes to food. I want the essence of a meal to shine through. When it comes to burgers, the meat is what counts the most. The Prohibition Burger at Tap 42 is quite tasty with aged cheddar, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and their "secret sauce." The bun is the absolute right consistency. Overall, I liked the burger but I am not running back to eat it again soon. The burger was juicy and flavorful, but the restaurant skimped on size.
The conglomeration of additional accompaniments mask the essence of the meal...the meat itself.
Therefore, I recommend Tap 42's Prohibition Burger with a "medium" rating. (3 out of 5)
