For their June 2009 issue, Travel and Leisure lists their picks for America's best burgers. They meant to choose just 10 burgers around the country, but were inspired to pick two from New York City to make 11 burgers.
America's 11 Best Burgers
San Francisco: Burger Joint
Memphis: Dyer's Burger
New Orleans: Lüke
Seattle: Quinn's Pub
Austin, TX: Ranch 616
Hale’iwa, HI: Kua'Aina Sandwich Shop
Washington, D.C.: Kemble Park Tavern
New York City: Back Forty and Black Iron Burger Shop [AHT review: Black Iron Burger Shop]
Hanover, NH: Murphy's on the Green
The only burgers I've had on this list are from Back Forty and Black Iron Burger Shop, neither of which I would choose as my favorite burger in the city. Perhaps I should try them again?
Coupled with their list of America's best burgers, Travel + Leisure also chose the best hotel room-service burgers. ...Alrighty.
Best Hotel Room-Service Burgers
New York City: Four Seasons
Tokyo: Park Hyatt
Mexico City: Habita
Honolulu: Kahala Resort
