Best Burgers in NYC
Hi guys, I had a great time in NYC the past month and now I’m back in London. I missed the food in New York so much that I made sure to eat all my favorite NYC food before I leave. I’m sure some of you guys saw foodie photos on my Instagram. The places that I missed the most were Baked by Melissa, The Halal Guys, Two Little Red Hens, Grimaldi’s Pizza, and SHAKE SHACK… The funny this is that I rarely went to most of these places when I was in NYC! Okay, I pretty much went to Baked by Melissa and Shake Shack every other week but those are an exception 😉
During my trip I made sure to eat all the best burgers – in fact, I had burgers for lunch AND dinner on my last two days in NYC! Now that’s a LOT of burgers. As I lived in NYC for almost ten years and I love burgers, I’d like to share three of my personal favorite burgers in NYC 🙂
1. Shake Shack
How can anyone not love Shake Shack burgers? Made with premium never frozen meat with potato buns, it’s by far the best burger I had and I’m so happy that they are opening a Shack Shack near my apartment in London! For first timers, I suggest to try Shack Stack which is a hamburger topped with fried “cheese bomb” which melts in your mouth.
2. Rare Burger
My coworkers took me out here and I fell in love with Rare Burger. Located in midtown and Chelsea, Rare Burger can be great for after-work outing with coworkers or even a casual romantic date. They even open up their rooftop for the summer 😉
3. Burger Joint
I love Burger Joint but I’m guilty to say that I haven’t been here in a few years only because it’s not conveniently located for me. If you do take a trip here, don’t be fooled by it’s location inside the beautiful Le Parker Meridien hotel as the restaurant itself has a totally different atmosphere. It’s almost like a shack, as it’s hidden in a small corner of the hotel.
What’s your favorite burger in NYC? And if you know of other places for a great burger, please share! I’d love to here 🙂
