Since its modest origins in the early 1900s as a beef patty sandwiched between two slices of basic bread, the burger continues to experience a tremendous transformation, with chefs adding their spin on it. Here are six of New York City’s best burgers you need to try out.
The 7th Street Burger cheeseburger consists of roughly chopped sweet onions pressed into a 75/25 Schweid and Sons beef patty.
It’s then smashed with a spatula, resulting in a White Castle slider-like experience enhanced by the yellow American cheese. The 4 Charles burger is also remarkable, comprising two patties and plenty of cheese and sauce. The hefty burger at Saigon Social is topped with pickled carrots, daikon, jalapeno slices, and a handful of cilantro. The unique aspect of their burger is that you can taste the meat’s variety, a combination of short rib and dry-aged rib eye.
The Vitruvian Man burger consists of a thick patty, melted cheddar, smoky bacon, and smoked onion aioli. The proportions are perfect, so none of the flavors overpowers the others. The Black Label Burger at Minetta Tavern was among the city’s first super-luxe burgers and is still one of the best. The butter-basted patty is made from dry-aged ribeye and served on a Balthazar bun with a mound of caramelized onions.
