  1. Burger Joint

    Burger Joint

    119 W. 56th St., Midtown, NY 10019

    Welcome to the best burger in town. Hidden behind red velvet curtains inside the swank Midtown hotel Le Paker Meridien, is this staged hole in the wall, complete with fake wood paneling and vinyl booths.

  2. Shake Shack

    Shake Shack

    Madison Square Park, Flatiron, NY 10010

    I once saw a man at Shake Shack, dressed in a suit and setting a formal table. On the small metal table he placed a white tablecloth, fine silverware, a candle, and some flowers. For a moment, I was overcome with joy at the beautiful event that was about to unfold before me…this man was about to propose to a burger.

  3. The Spotted Pig

    The Spotted Pig

    314 W. 11th St., West Village, NY 10014

    Possibly New York’s most famous “gastro-pub”, The Spotted Pig is ideal for evenings where you’re looking to mix it up, throw a couple down, and see where the night takes you.

  4. Shack Shack Times Square

    Shake Shack Times Square

    693 8th Ave., Midtown, NY 10036

    “Selling out” will always be a hotly debated topic. Growing up, my friends and I would spend hours arguing about whether or not our favorite bands were sellouts. Green Day, Rancid, Bad Religion, all bands that were supposed to be so punk, yet signed on with a major label at one point in their careers. […]

  5. Peaches Hothouse

    Peaches Hothouse

    415 Tompkins Ave., Bedford-Stuyvesant, NY 11216

    Look, we know Bed-Stuy has recently started to gentrify, the same way so many other Brooklyn neighborhoods have, but it’s still pretty f*ucking sketchy out there. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t a bit spooked out walking from the Nostrand Ave. subway stop through some dark, empty streets with no one around except […]

  6. Corner Bistro

    Corner Bistro

    331 W. 4th St., West Village, NY 10014

    There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for Immaculate Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.

  7. Bill's Bar & Burger

    Bill’s Bar & Burger

    22 9th Ave., Meatpacking District, NY 10014

    An excellent burger joint reminiscent of the great middle-of-nowhere dives around the country…right in the middle of the Meat Packing District.

  8. Burger & Barrel

    Burger & Barrel

    25 W. Houston Street, SoHo, NY 10012

    You know what happens when a chef at a popular seafood restaurant wins Food & Wine Festival’s Burger Bash? Naturally, said chef opens his own burger joint. Burger & Barrel is the new burger establishment from Lure Fishbar chef Josh Capon. Capon took the burger crown in 2009 and has since been serving it on […]

  9. Diner


    85 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Believe it or not, people used to live in Williamsburg because it was cheaper than Manhattan, not because it was cool. Before the hipster invasion began in the late 90′s, the South side belonged to the Hasidim and Peter Luger. Sure, there were always artists, musicians and .com hopefuls living there, but it was nothing […]

  10. Royale


    157 Ave. C, East Village, NY 10009

    One of the best burgers in Manhattan…and you might never know it.
