A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 18 comments

The Pastrami Burger at Jeffrey's Grocery is great, but its $19 price tag is hard to swallow. More

Not that you'd go to Emmett's for a burger, but we tried it so we'll tell you how it is. More

The Monte Cristo Burger at Umami Burger Is Better Than You'd Expect

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 8 comments

Designed in collaboration with Ink chef and former Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, this burger is topped with Busseto prosciutto and Gruyère fondue and served on a French toast-ified bun dusted with powdered sugar. A first glance it seemingly appeals solely to gluttonous masochists and lovers of a good culinary mashup. Sadly, I am both. More

If anyone would serve a burger with a giant bone sticking out of it, it'd be M. Wells. More

Meet the Wood-Fired Pies at Via Tribunali's NY Outpost

Slice Roger Kamholz 9 comments

On a Monday night not long ago, I popped into Via Tribunali New York, the sole East Coast outpost of the Seattle-born pizza chain. My companion and I were taken into the dining room (about the size of a rich man's tool shed), and seated under a picture of the Bay of Naples. The vista depicted the Naples of a bygone era—a nostalgic vision of the old country. More

Rizzo's Thin Crust Sicilian Meets High Expectations on the Lower East Side

Slice Niki Achitoff-Gray 3 comments

Whenever I hear that an acclaimed pizzeria has expanded with a second (let alone third) branch, I can't help but let loose a skeptical eyebrow raise, a tilt of the head, a smirk of a shrug. If you're like me, get ready for a pleasant surprise, because Rizzo's latest outpost is turning out pies that stand up to the original storefront's (and give them a run for their money, to boot).

Visiting PS1 in Long Island City? Court Square Diner's There for You

A Hamburger Today Max Falkowitz 3 comments

If you're visiting MoMA's PS1 or 5 Pointz in its final days, you may be looking for a bite, and rest assured there's nowhere closer to the 7 train as...err...shiny as the Court Square Diner. More

Umami Burger in NYC Misses the Point

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 53 comments

Umami Burger just doesn't hold up against similar burgers in its price range. While the Manly Burger is a solid choice, the Original lacks balance and highlights the problems with making "umami" an end in itself. Like someone overloading a dish with bacon or fiery chilies, the end result is one-note and, frankly, misses the point. More

Ribalta: Neo-Neapolitan in Union Square

Slice Ed Levine 16 comments

At Ribalta, pizzas are leavened by a natural starter that was brought back from Italy—it's somewhere between 80 and 100 years old, and over the course of a five to seven day rise it brings a noticeable lightness and cultured flavor to the dough. But unlike certain Neapolitan pizzerias that take a monastic approach to the One and Only pie, Ribalta plays around with tradition—just ask the hot dog and fries pizza or the limoncello-marinated chicken wings.

Pennsylvania 6's fantastic dry aged burger is an easy recommendation for anyone traveling through Penn Station or visiting Madison Square Garden. More

A Flavorful, Nearly Excellent Burger at OTB in Williamsburg

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 17 comments

Before Mayor Bloomberg shut them down in 2010, off-track betting parlors, or OTBs, were a bastion of classic NYC seediness. Earlier this year, the OTB was revived in the form of a bar/restaurant in a prospering section of South Williamsburg. The cheeseburger is a classic, straightforward rendition, but it's the crisp, chili-brined fries that are the real winner. More

Shake Shack is Coming to Dumbo Next Year

A Hamburger Today Max Falkowitz 4 comments

December 20th, 2011 marked Shake Shack's first foray into Brooklyn. Now the burger empire has its sights set on Dumbo for a location to open in mid-2014. More

Someone Made an Umami Cronut Burger

A Hamburger Today Robyn Lee 9 comments

It's a match made in trendy-NYC-food heaven (or hell): an Umami Burger with a bisected Cronut-for-buns. Yesterday, Matthew Schonfeld of First We Feast spent about five hours making this burger mash-up, starting at 6:38 a.m. when he got in line at Dominique Ansel Bakery for their limited number of deep-fried croissant doughnuts, and ending at the grand opening of Umami Burger's first NYC location.

NYC: Bring on the Mush at Island Burgers and Shakes

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 11 comments

I'd only ever been to Island Burger and Shakes at its original Hell's Kitchen location once and at the time my mental capacity had been modified to a common late night state during which the only parameters I am able to judge things by are their size and moisture content. I remember the burger being large and moist, and that was good enough for me for the time being. When I recently re-visited both the Hell's Kitchen location and the newer Upper West Side location, I discovered, to my embarrassment and horror, that Island Burger and Shakes was actually not anything like my intoxicated self had promised my sober self it would be.

Umami Burger Will Open in the West Village on Monday

A Hamburger Today Nick Solares 7 comments

West Coast burger chain Umami Burger is set to open the first of three planned New York outposts next Monday in the West Village. The restaurant will be a sit-down, waiter service affair, with a full bar and cocktails. The menu will focus heavily on burgers and sides as one would expect, but it will also feature salads and possibly other sandwiches in the near future. Take a look through the slideshow at some of the burgers and cocktails » More

NYC: Clarke's Standard is Just That

These standard burgers distinguish themselves from the competitors, but they won't knock your socks off. More

NYC: Bright Lights, Big Burger at The Odeon

A Hamburger Today Noah Arenstein 5 comments

The Odeon has a more interesting history than most other restaurants. In fact, Gael Greene named it one of the top ten "most important" restaurants in New York City. Their exceptionally beefy burger has been a standby since the beginning over 30 years ago. More

New York: An Excellent Burger and Fries at Maison Harlem

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

Maison Harlem is fast becoming my favorite neighborhood hang. The food—mostly classic Paris-style bistro fare—is nothing innovative, but solid enough to earn my money. The space is warm, a friendly neighborhood bar with worn-in tables and bar seats—the kind of space you'd expect in, say, the West Village, minus the oppressive crowds and loud music. And they've got a killer burger to boot. More
