Alex Garcia's Manhattan Latin Burger

    “This is my burger – I was born in Cuba but have been living and cooking in Manhattan for years,” says New York City's Alex Garcia.

    “At A.G. Kitchen, I am bringing together my love and knowledge for traditional Latin cuisine and classic American comfort food. And the Manhattan Latin Burger is just that: a nice and thick brisket blend burger topped with thick-cut double-smoked bacon, fresh guacamole and our special AG sauce.”

     

    Chef Alex Garcia is known as one of the creators of the Nuevo Latino cooking movement, and Calle OchoBabalu, and Copacabana, as well as the recently opened A.G. Kitchen on New York's Upper West Side.
