Queens: F. Ottomanelli Makes a Burger You'll Want to Love, But Can't

AHT: New York Max Falkowitz 5 comments

I wanted so much to love my burger at the new Woodside branch of F. Ottomanelli & Sons. Why? For starters, the promise of freshly ground chuck and short rib from butchers that have become something of a New York institution. I went into my review hungry with positive bias. The fall was long and hard. More

Astoria, NYC: Jackson Hole Airline Diner, Where Bigger Is Not Necessarily Better

AHT: New York Adam Kuban 20 comments

If you're on the way home from the airport and your curiosity gets the best of you, I wouldn't blame you for stopping to see a minor location in a great Scorsese film. Or to even take some photos — it's crazy photogenic in the hands of a better photographer than I. But don't bother with the burger. Bigger is not better here. More

Astoria, NYC: A Great Burger in an Unlikely Spot at Astor Bake Shop

AHT: New York Adam Kuban 24 comments

Astor Bake Shop opened just shy of a year ago in an unlikely place. Far from the subway lines that serve Astoria, it's a place you might only visit if you lived in the area or took a short detour south after a day in Astoria Park. The shop is the "labor of love" of chef-owner George McKirdy, a veteran of some fancy Manhattan restaurants. Although a bakery in appellation, it serves a short menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes as well. Among them a very good burger, maybe even the best I've had so far in Astoria. More

Astoria, NYC: A Pretty Sweet Burger at Sweet Afton

AHT: New York Adam Kuban 9 comments

The patty takes on a nice sear, giving you some crunchy bits and some carnal, cavemanish UGH-FIRE-GOOOOOD flavor. Oh, and it's nicely seasoned. They're not afraid of salt here. More

Long Island City: For All Your 24-Ounce Burger Needs, Head to M. Wells Diner

AHT: New York Robyn Lee 16 comments

M. Wells' dinner menu features a $42 burger. What? It's made of a 28-ounce lamb and beef patty tucked into a 14-ounce bun, for a total of 2.4 pounds of burger. Ah, ok. More

NYC: My Favorite New Burger, at LIC's Burger Garage

AHT: New York Adam Kuban 18 comments

If you're in the neighborhood, you owe it to yourself to add The Burger Garage to your lunch- or dinnertime roster. It's also worth a detour if you're a 7-, G-, E-, or M-train rider and your commute takes you through the Court Square/23rd-Ely. In a city where new burger joints often backfire despite the best intentions, the Burger Garage seems to be firing on all cylinders. More

Astoria, NYC: 5 Napkin Burger Doesn't Live Up to the Hype

Nick Solares 13 comments

I have to admit that I came to 5 Napkin Burger prejudice against it, so much so that I willfully avoided eating it until this week. It's not just the size of the burger—a full 10-ounce patty, which is at least twice my ideal patty size—but also the amount and indeed the very nature of the toppings that are served with it. Not surprisingly, considering that the burger was born at Upper West Side bistro Nice Matin, the restaurant's namesake dish is all frogged up, the hamburger equivalent of French onion soup. More
