In an interview at Midtown Lunch, eGullet.com co-founder and author of Asian Dining Rules Stephen A. Shaw revealed that his favorite burger in New York City is from the six-seat Burger Bar at Beacon. Shaw's description:
For $12.95 you get the Beacon Burger, which in my opinion is the best burger in New York City—and I think I’ve sampled most every contender for that title. It’s an 8 oz. grilled burger made from Niman Ranch Certified Natural Black Angus beef, served on country toast and garnished with (all on the side) grilled red onion, lettuce, tomato, house-made pickles and ketchup, and very good garlic fries. I have been going pretty much weekly for the past year.
The Burger Bar is only open from noon until 2:30 p.m.—Shaw recommends getting there at noon or after 1:45 for the shortest wait. He also adds that Beacon is kid-friendly.
