The Upper East Side gets a promising new casual lunch and dinner option today with the opening Go Burger, a new concept from the BLT Group that's basically a spin-off of BLT Burger in the West Village. The project was developed by BLT Group executive chef (and TV star) Rodelio Aglibot and chef de cuisine Forrest Pasternack, who have created a menu of slightly upscale sandwiches and larger comfort food entrees.

The burgers are a mix of sirloin, short rib, chuck and brisket, the hot dogs are made with American Kobe beef, and there are also fish and vegetarian falafel burgers, and a creation called the UltiMELT, which is basically a bacon burger between two grilled gruyere cheese sandwiches. For a bigger meal, there's fried chicken, meatloaf and mac and cheese, and on the side, four different kinds of fries, including spuds cooked in duck fat. The long, modern dining room boasts booths, tables and a full bar. Check out the full menu below, and do send any early reports this way.
