Top 5 Burgers in NYC

If you know anything about melted cheese, a good bun, and a delectable blend of fresh herbs and spices to culminate the perfect burger, you must (if you regrettably haven’t already) try the below spaces of heaven.

1. Raoul’s (My personal favorite)

This burger literally is an explosion of pure deliciousness in your mouth. And needs no explanation. Go early because they have limited quantity prepared every night (12 to be exact) and you are required to eat at the bar.

Located @ 180 Prince St

2. Minetta Tavern – The Black Label Burger

“Clarified butter is drizzled on top of the patty and copious amounts of salt and pepper are added throughout the cooking process. This is one pampered burger.”

Located @ 113 MacDougal St

3 . Breslin at the Ace Hotel – The Lamb Burger

This patty speaks for itself. The flavor of the lamb screams “no condiments required”, chargrilled and lightly drizzled with creamy feta, and served with the fattest fries your eyes have drooled over.

Located @ 16 W 29th St

4. Spotted Pig – Bloomfield’s & Friedman’s gastropub

Shoestring fries accompany this mouth-watering, chargrilled burger with a heaping amount of Roquefort cheese. Enough said.

Located @ 314 W 11th St

5. J.G. Melon – The Classic Burger

A high-quality beef burger, simple in its presentation with just the right amount of cheese and pickle, so good, you have to eat two.  Est. in 1972, no wonder this joint still makes the cut.

Loacted @ 1291 Third Ave

Get your appetite in gear and satiate that palate of yours for the above burgers, each delightful and splendid in their own right. Yes, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Shake Shack, so even in the dead of winter, you may find yourself meandering towards the outdoor location in the heart of Madison Square Park.

Bon Appetito!
