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.

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

Midtown: HB Burger's Super Juicy and Beefy Prime Steakhouse Burger

J. Kenji López-Alt 14 comments

Let's get straight to the point: this is a fantastic burger and a fantastic deal. There are not too many places in the city that you can get a burger made with dry-aged beef period, let alone for only $16.95 with a side to boot. More

Video: Behind the Scenes at Prime Burger

Robyn Lee 8 comments

The latest video from This Must Be the Place—"a series of short films that explore the idea of home"—features Prime Burger, a burger joint/diner in Midtown Manhattan that opened in 1938 and has barely changed since the 1960s. Depending on who you talk to, it's either past its prime (according to Nick Solares) or one of New York's great burgers (according to Ed Levine). After watching this beautifully shot video by Lost & Found Films, featuring interviews with employees who've work there from just three years to 59 years, we can all hopefully agree it's a New York icon worth keeping around whether or not you like burgers.

Steak 'n Shake Signature Opening Thursday in NYC, Chance to Win a Year of Free Burgers

Robyn Lee 2 comments

Midwest burger chain Steak 'n Shake is opening its first location, called Steak 'n Shake Signature, in New York City this Thursday, January 12, at 1695 Broadway (at 53rd Street, next to the Ed Sullivan Theater; map). Different from most Steak 'n Shakes, the Signature version is smaller, features counter-service instead of table service, and is open from 10 a.m. to midnight instead of 24 hours a day. Menu prices are the same as elsewhere. New additions to the New York menu (viewable here) are a six-ounce Signature Steakburger made with organic beef and beer and wine. More

NYC: Keens Steakhouse Burger Delivers Plenty of Juice

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 14 comments

Despite $50+ prices for dry aged steaks at night (plus more for à la carte side dishes), steakhouses can offer some of the best lunch deals in town. We've previously commented on a few of Keens Steakhouse's lunch steak options, as well as the awesomely decadent Prime Rib Hash, and I'm happy to report that if you're into brick-thick steakhouse-style grilled burgers, theirs is a steal worth braving the dark, oak-covered, and suit-filled pub room for.
