AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 18 comments

The Pastrami Burger at Jeffrey's Grocery is great, but its $19 price tag is hard to swallow. More

Not that you'd go to Emmett's for a burger, but we tried it so we'll tell you how it is. More

The Monte Cristo Burger at Umami Burger Is Better Than You'd Expect

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 8 comments

Designed in collaboration with Ink chef and former Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, this burger is topped with Busseto prosciutto and Gruyère fondue and served on a French toast-ified bun dusted with powdered sugar. A first glance it seemingly appeals solely to gluttonous masochists and lovers of a good culinary mashup. Sadly, I am both. More

Behold the Bone-In Burger From M. Wells Steakhouse in Queens

If anyone would serve a burger with a giant bone sticking out of it, it'd be M. Wells. More

Visiting PS1 in Long Island City? Court Square Diner's There for You

AHT: New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

If you're visiting MoMA's PS1 or 5 Pointz in its final days, you may be looking for a bite, and rest assured there's nowhere closer to the 7 train as...err...shiny as the Court Square Diner. More

Umami Burger in NYC Misses the Point

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 53 comments

Umami Burger just doesn't hold up against similar burgers in its price range. While the Manly Burger is a solid choice, the Original lacks balance and highlights the problems with making "umami" an end in itself. Like someone overloading a dish with bacon or fiery chilies, the end result is one-note and, frankly, misses the point. More

Pennsylvania 6's fantastic dry aged burger is an easy recommendation for anyone traveling through Penn Station or visiting Madison Square Garden. More

A Flavorful, Nearly Excellent Burger at OTB in Williamsburg

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 17 comments

Before Mayor Bloomberg shut them down in 2010, off-track betting parlors, or OTBs, were a bastion of classic NYC seediness. Earlier this year, the OTB was revived in the form of a bar/restaurant in a prospering section of South Williamsburg. The cheeseburger is a classic, straightforward rendition, but it's the crisp, chili-brined fries that are the real winner. More

Shake Shack is Coming to Dumbo Next Year

AHT: New York Max Falkowitz 4 comments

December 20th, 2011 marked Shake Shack's first foray into Brooklyn. Now the burger empire has its sights set on Dumbo for a location to open in mid-2014. More

Someone Made an Umami Cronut Burger

Robyn Lee 9 comments

It's a match made in trendy-NYC-food heaven (or hell): an Umami Burger with a bisected Cronut-for-buns. Yesterday, Matthew Schonfeld of First We Feast spent about five hours making this burger mash-up, starting at 6:38 a.m. when he got in line at Dominique Ansel Bakery for their limited number of deep-fried croissant doughnuts, and ending at the grand opening of Umami Burger's first NYC location.

NYC: Bring on the Mush at Island Burgers and Shakes

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 11 comments

I'd only ever been to Island Burger and Shakes at its original Hell's Kitchen location once and at the time my mental capacity had been modified to a common late night state during which the only parameters I am able to judge things by are their size and moisture content. I remember the burger being large and moist, and that was good enough for me for the time being. When I recently re-visited both the Hell's Kitchen location and the newer Upper West Side location, I discovered, to my embarrassment and horror, that Island Burger and Shakes was actually not anything like my intoxicated self had promised my sober self it would be.

Umami Burger Will Open in the West Village on Monday

AHT: New York Nick Solares 7 comments

West Coast burger chain Umami Burger is set to open the first of three planned New York outposts next Monday in the West Village. The restaurant will be a sit-down, waiter service affair, with a full bar and cocktails. The menu will focus heavily on burgers and sides as one would expect, but it will also feature salads and possibly other sandwiches in the near future. Take a look through the slideshow at some of the burgers and cocktails » More

NYC: Clarke's Standard is Just That

AHT: New York Sam Levison Post a comment

These standard burgers distinguish themselves from the competitors, but they won't knock your socks off. More

NYC: Bright Lights, Big Burger at The Odeon

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 5 comments

The Odeon has a more interesting history than most other restaurants. In fact, Gael Greene named it one of the top ten "most important" restaurants in New York City. Their exceptionally beefy burger has been a standby since the beginning over 30 years ago. More

New York: An Excellent Burger and Fries at Maison Harlem

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

Maison Harlem is fast becoming my favorite neighborhood hang. The food—mostly classic Paris-style bistro fare—is nothing innovative, but solid enough to earn my money. The space is warm, a friendly neighborhood bar with worn-in tables and bar seats—the kind of space you'd expect in, say, the West Village, minus the oppressive crowds and loud music. And they've got a killer burger to boot. More

NYC: Truly Terrible Burgers Barely Saved By Excellent Fries at Hudson Common

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 17 comments

I'm not really the type of person who deals in take-downs or overly negative posts. But once in a while I feel so duped, so cheated, so entirely frustrated that I just spent $13 on the worst burger I've had since my middle school cafeteria days that I feel a bit of warning is due to our readers, in the hopes that the same fate will not befall them. More

NYC: Burger Joint Can't Meet High Expectations

AHT: New York Noah Arenstein 44 comments

If I placed Burger Joint head-to-head, Burger Week-style against its most obvious competitor, Shake Shack, I can't see myself recommending Burger Joint. While I may return to the Greenwich Village location once the bar area is finished, the original location is best left as a novelty. More

Burger Joint Expanding to West Village, a Stop on Worldwide Burger Domination

AHT: New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

Burger Joint, the well-loved restaurant in the Parker Meridien Hotel, now has a new location in Greenwich Village, Eater reports. The new space is much larger than the original, a boon to the crowds likely to follow, and will also be serving liquor. The rest of the menu will be the same as the Midtown branch. More
