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

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

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: 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

West Village: Is Corner Bistro The Most Overrated Burger in NYC?

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 36 comments

It may come as a surprise to long-time AHT readers and New Yorkers that we haven't really written much about Corner Bistro since Adam first reviewed it way back in 2005. Why is that, you might ask? Here's the dirty little secret: none of us here really like it that much. More

New to NYC Burger Chains: The Counter, SmashBurger, Go Burger, and Elevation Burger

AHT: New York J. Kenji López-Alt 33 comments

Last week, I visited Elevation Burger, an organic burger chain from Falls Church Virginia, The Counter, a high concept design-a-burger chain from California, Go Burger, a brick-and-mortar version of the truck based on a Los Angeles burger joint, and Smashburger, the rapidly expanding Denver-based chain that just opened its first New York location in Brooklyn. At each restaurant, I ordered a few burgers, tried all of their sides and special menu items, as well as a milkshake. How'd they compare to each other, and more importantly, are they going to be key players in the New York burger landscape? Let's take a look at them one at a time and see. More

Secrets of Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger

Nick Solares 39 comments

"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." In the months before Minetta Tavern re-opened under the auspices of Keith Mcnally... More
