In honor of National Cheeseburger Day yesterday, Open Table and Duclot La Vinicole have teamed up to present a week-long Burgers and Bordeaux initiative, which runs through Saturday. More than 20 NYC restaurants, including Acme, Wallflower, Black Barn, and Bowery Meat Company, are offering a specialty burger paired with a glass Bordeaux this week only! Not only do you get to indulge in a tasty cheeseburger, but you also get to sip on a glass of Bordeaux, which is a rare occurrence. Bitch Tip: Bordeaux wines typically aren’t offered by the glass, so this is the perfect opportunity to sample one if you haven’t already and don’t want to splurge on a bottle. Make a reservation here. Various locations
