After strolling through acres upon acres of sculpture-dotted landscape at Storm King Art Center, I had worked up a hearty appetite. I was in the mood for a fresh, juicy burger, and Poppy's Burger & Fries satisfied that craving. Between the grass-fed beef and the NY brews on tap, I was pleasantly surprised to discover most the items on Poppy's menu were locally sourced.
Whether you sit in the main restaurant area or the small backyard courtyard, the atmosphere and the service is relaxed. When my meal arrived, I couldn't wait to unwrap the foil enclosed burger in front of me. It needed no extra toppings nor sauce, passing my definition of a delicious burger test. A large basket of crispy shoestring fries proved to be enough for two to share. It's burgers like Poppy's that will make you wonder why you've ever settled for anything less.
