The River Edge Diner is a trendy American Diner located in River Edge New Jersey. I’ve been hearing for a very long time that their food is amazing and I wanted to check it out for myself.
My search for the perfect French dip is still ongoing. Though this one was executed well, the traditional French dip is made with stale bread and even though it was toasted it did not have the same intended effect. The bread was still too soft on the inside. A positive point of the sandwich is the meat was not tough and could be biten through with out much effort.
This is the Bistro Burger served with grilled tomato, feta cheese, and caramelized balsamic onions and fries on the side. Not pictured are the caramelized balsamic onions which were left out. This was quickly remedied once I pointed it out. And thank goodness I did. My first impression of the burger was that I was bland in flavor but the onions really took this burger from loser to winner. The burger was not greasy nor overly wet. I am not usually a fan of tomatoes in burgers but the Chard really added to the flavor. The creaminess from the feta balanced the sweetness from the onions. The fried were good, I do wish that this dish came with hand cut fries. Nameing it the Bistro Burger to pair it with frozen fries removed from the experience, in my opinion. But they were good.
