Corner Bistro, a haven of tightness except for this

Ah, the anticipation of the Bistro Burger.  You try not to think too much about it from the time you place your order to the time you see your waiter come back with your eight ounces of heaven.  Then your mouth starts to water as the moment has arrived... only to find a latex glove in the burger?  Unacceptable.  The situation is only made worse by the fact that you now have to wait for a replacement while thinking about how weird and disgusting this is (presumably a bare hand that was previously sweating profusely inside the glove has touched your burger) but also that it is seemingly impossible to misplace a latex glove.  Why was it taken off?  Why was it so easily forgotten?  How did they manage to turn what should be a symbol of cleanliness into this?  Why do I have so much time to think about this before the next burger arrives?  When can we go back?

OMG: How do you put the bun on top of that burger without seeing the latex glove underneath?!?!

Mandy, maybe the secret of their burgers is really old, crusty mayonnaise? Or aged swiss cheese?

I can happily say that this only makes me love the CB even more. Part of the allure of the place is the gritty old New York attitude. The bartenders get to you when they get to you and have the foulest look of disdain on their faces when you order wine. The Chinese seat master runs the tightest ship I've ever seen and actually will give you the nod when he reconizes you. When the server gets to you, you freakin order and that's all their is too it. A latex glove every now and than is what it takes to keep the inappropriate charm of the place.
