In an effort to bring "Hollywood to New York," Fatburger CEO Andy Wiederhorn has begun his East Coast expansion and he is bringing his brand of grilled-to-order patties and candy-inspired milkshakes with him. The New York version won't feel familiar to West Coasters - exposed duct work, brick and vintage pics are scattered throughout, and this one has a full bar. Because that's how NYers roll.
But the Fat crew aren't taking too much of a risk - all menu items are the same. Including the The XXX Challenge, which double-dog dares burger lovers to indulge in a giant-sized burger made with three patties (24oz of beef total), cheese and all the trimmings. Succeed and you get a certificate and your name on the wall of burger eating fame.
