From bacon-topped to mixed-in marrow, Luxury Attaché presents the top 5 mouthwatering burgers in New York City. Get the whole list with all the fixins’ below.
1 Burger Joint
Hidden away in Le Parker Meridien, Burger Joint is anything but a humdrum flat-pattied drive through. Behind the mass of velvet curtains lay a burger simple in design and complex in flavor. Summer is an excellent time to drop by the joint, especially after working up an appetite in the rooftop pool.
Le Parker Meridien 119 West 56th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues
2 Minetta Tavern
The Black Label Burger at Keith McNally’s Minetta Tavern is nothing new but still holds top rank in the New York burger scene. Caramelized onions sit atop the main attraction made of prime dry-aged cuts of beef.
113 Macdougal Street, near Minetta Lane
3 The Little Owl
Don't let the size of this tiny west village restaurant fool you. It's got flavor (and celebrity sightings) bursting at the seams. Get the Bacon Cheeseburger made from a mixture of beef brisket and short rib.
90 Bedford Street, between Grove and Barrow Streets
4 Shake Shack
Dubbed as a modern day “roadside burger stand,” Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack offers 100% all-natural Angus beef to the New York masses. Try the SmokeShack, a cheeseburger with applewood smoked bacon and signature ShackSauce.
5 Corner Bistro
When it comes to devouring the 8 ounce juicy mess that is the Bistro Burger, don’t expect anything fancy. Plates are paper and don’t stand a chance against the lip-smacking cheese and bacon-blanketed slab of beef. Located in the west village, the restaurant is a cozy and often packed joint that won’t break the bank (the burger is a mere $8.75.)
331 West 4th Street at the corner of Jane and West 4th Street
