Buns out, guns out – it’s burger time. Forget In-N-Out in LA and let’s talk about New York City’s finest burger bars. If you’re heading to the big smoke, make it your mission to indulge in New York City’s best burger bars....
The classic cheeseburger
Where: Burger Joint
Because let’s face it. Nothing beats a classic cheeseburger. This joint revolutionised cheeseburgers in New York…
The 7oz burger
Where: Jackson Hole Burgers
Word on the street is that President Clinton, Denzel Washington and Jennifer Aniston have dined here. Try the mouth-watering 7 oz burger.
The burger with pork belly
Where: Schatzi’s Pub
What makes the schatzi burger special? Uh the 8 ounces of LaFrieda-blended burger meat, with crispy pork belly, melted cheddar, potato, green onion, rosti, special sauce and pretzel buns…of course.
The dry-aged burger
Where: Minetta Tavern
To say that the process of this burger is simple is an understatement. The cooking process of the patties is more complicated than learning another language.
The final product looks simple, but it isn’t. There really aren’t enough words to describe this burger. So damn succulent. Juicy. Beefy with a dry ageing flavour. Basically delicious. Why? It’s seasoned with an aggressive amount of salt and pepper basted in clarified butter during the cooking process. THEN caramelised onions are heated in the beef fat. And that brioche bun… Need we say more?

The veggie 'shroom burger
Where: Shake shack
It’s rare for one burger joint to be so damn popular. Shake shack is a fast food joint that people can’t seem to get enough of. Try the ‘Shroom burger’ (or any other burger, seriously). It’s Portobello mushroom filled with melted Muenster and cheddar cheese + a peanut butter shake, if you’re game. Or if you prefer your burgers alfresco, there is a Shake Shack right in the middle of Madison Square Park.
The Korean burger
Where: 5 Napkin burger
Marinated double burger with Kimchi slaw, Sriracha mayo, pickled jalapenos, cilantro and sesame seeds. That is all.
The jerk fry burger
Where: Harlem shake
Beef jerky with a ridiculous amount of seasoning, topped with fries.
The umami burger
Where: Umami Burgers
Umami is all about creating that perfect mouthful. They credit their success to their ground breaking Umami master sauce with a carefully crafted combo of toppings on a slightly sweet toasted bun. Experience it for yourself.
The chargrilled burger with Roquefort cheese
Where: The Spotted Pig
No words needed, just look at that bad boy…Be sure to try the shoestring fries.
