Zaitzeff is a terrific burger joint in the east village located on avenue B between 2nd and 3rd street. Kova and I had dinner there Wednesday. Kova had the blt, I had the kobe burger and we shared the mixed green salad. Kova really enjoyed her dish, although I was a bit underwhelmed when I tasted it. The kobe burger that I ate is their signature dish at $16 it is a pricy burger, but it is delicious. In gourmet form they allow you to add a variety of toppings, I put avocado and jalapeno pepper on top which proved to be quiet delicious. The mixed green salad was nice having avocado, beets, and tomatoes on a bed of fresh greens. I have never had trouble getting a table at the spot that has a cushy, quiet atmosphere. The low lighting in the restaurant gives is a cozy, romantic feel. They also have a bar where you can sit and eat.
