Welcome to Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, a visit to Cypress at 6:00 p.m., on a Monday, for The Five Days of Meat.
Cypress is a scion of sophisticated fine dining, yet on Monday nights, guests know to head to the bar area for $5 Burger Night. These aren't the normal hamburgers, these are super thoughtful masterpieces made with high-end beef. Executive chef Craig Deihl and chef de cuisine Bob Cook routinely post burger porn teasers of the menu before the doors open at 5:00 p.m. Their creations are so tempting, there's even a Cooking Channel segment dedicated to their patty melt, in which Deihl is deemed the "pope of pork."
For a closer look at all the meaty goodness, Eater sent photographer Rémy Thurston to view the scene on a recent Monday night.
