There’s nothing like Memorial Day to get us thinking about a juicy burger! We turned to our resident NYC foodies for recommendations on where to get the best burgers around the city.
According to Life Through Chocolate:
“One of my favorite burgers in the city that probably isn’t mentioned on a lot of lists is from Mel’s Burger Bar. They have two awesome ones, the Nurse Betty – their veggie burger– and the Widowmaker – mac and cheese and bacon on a burger!”
“I also really like the California burger wrapped in spinach from Bare Burger”
According to The Food Joy:
“The Park” burger at Park Avenue Tavern in Murray Hill has what I like to call ‘a fancy Big Mac’ with its special chef’s sauce, american cheese, caramelized onions and pickles”
“I finally had the opportunity to try the classic In-N-Out burger, which is often compared to Shake Shack. Well, to me, there was no comparison. Shake Shack has always been and continues to be one of my favorite burgers. The perfectly soft bun with the thin, crispy patty combined with their cheese sauce, lettuce and tomato is hard to beat!”
“Lastly, the burger by Jordan Andino at 2nd City is one of the best I’ve ever laid my lips on. It was so good, I immediately ordered a second one and ate both in one sitting. Don’t judge me until you try it yourself! The patty reminds me of Shake Shack with two thin, crispy patties. What really makes it stand out from the rest is the banana ketchup!”
According to EatMeNYC:
“Lure Fishbar’s Bash Burger is actual sex and it constantly wins awards”
“Pat LaFrieda burgers are my absolute fave! They distribute to most well known NYC restaurants, but in the summer, I grab a few packs from their store at The Pennsy on my way back home to Long Island. They put them in a cooler bag so they’re still so fresh when you go to grill them”
“And you can’t forget JG Melon’s classic cheeseburger. no frilly toppings but SO DELISH. Pretty sure Gigi Hadid is also a fan, so there’s that lol”
According to Brunch & Crunch:
Minetta Tavern most definitely has one of the best burgers in NYC. Topped with caramelized onions, who can resist?
The Upland burger is basically a fancy diner burger, yum!
The Emily Burger from Emily “It has everything I need”
According to Lets.Eat.Yall:
“South of the Border Burger from the Horny Ram…has Mexican Street corn, so good!”
“Le Big Matt from Emmy squared [is] their take on a Big Mac – so delicious!”
