New York’s 5 Best Burgers? Wow! Who are they? Who right? Who’s Not? Yes, it’s not easy, and who’s to say who is the best, who’s not, and that they are thee authority and decider of who is # 1 and Who’s Not? Well, there are any number of people, magazines, newspapers, and other intitties doing articles, stories and what-not on the Best Burger or Best Burgers in town and around the country. It’s a big and popular subject.
Well, this is just ours. Not seeing that his is the definative list and list to end all. It’s just ours. And of these 5, we ourselves what put any number at the Top of The Heep, they’re all great burgers.


THE SKINNY On EACH

SCHNIPPERS
Schnippers is awesome. They came on the scene a couple years ago. They didn’t make all that much of a splash in the first year or year 1/2, but now? They’ve Splashed, and in quite a big way. They just opened their 3rd location in Manhattan and seems like their expansion will lead to any number across the country, alla Shake Shack. Spaeaking of Shake Shack, Schnipper’s opened their first place less than 200 feet from Shake Shacks hugely famous Flagship Burger Joint (and 1st) at Madison Park at 23rd Street and Madison Avenue.
Anyway, the Schnipper Burger is awesome. The Schnipper Burger is a classic straight forward burger. It’s 5 ounces, fresh beef (never frozen), cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly. We love it, and think it taste exactlt as a burger should, with an emphasis on the tasty beef patty.
JG MELON
JG Melon is one great old institution up on 3rd Avenue at 74th Steet on New York’s Upper East Side. The Melon is a cool classic old school bar, the kind that just can’t be duplicated. Great natural vibe, and un-contived. And guess what? they’ve got one of New York top burgers, if not thee # 1 tops .. Some say, they are the best. Their Burger, and we wouldn’t give them a fight on that. We love em too, and almost picked them for the # 1 spot on our list. What do you think.
SHAKE SHACK
A Great Burger! Some say the Best. We did too for some time, but we feeel that Schnipper’s has edged them out. Though we wouldn’t gie anyone a hard time if they Shake Shack is # 1 … They’re Buger is Classic, just the right size, seasoned and cooked to beautiful tasty perfection. We just Love Em.
PETER LUGER
The Luger Burger is awesome. It’s quite tasty, and makes our top 5 list for it’s tastieness and the fact that you can go into this Mecca of Steakdom and get a Burger for just 12 Bucks .. But you probably won’t. You gonna want some cheese on that $1.50 and the Bacon ($4.25) is a “Must Have” at Lugers. If you go for Fries (Only $1.95), your burgers gonna cost you about $19.00
But hey, “It Peter Luger” and that’s a bargain. 
You can only get The Luger Burger at Lunch, and we just love hopping over the Williamsburg Bridge every 2 or 3 months to get one. You will too.
MINETTA TAVERN
You can’t beat the ambiance and History of Minetta Tavern .. This Historical Old Greenwich Village Haunt is cool as can be. And you’ll feel you are too once and if you secure a seat inside. The master of the restaurant business in New York, Keith McNally rescued this great old joint, spruced it up just a bit, retaining its wonderful origianl decor, placed a couple great chefs at the helm and opened her up to rave reviews. The menu is French Bistro Steak House, with big juicy Steaks, Bistro Classics, and a pair of New York’s Hottest and most loved burgers; The Famed Black Label Burger ($24.00) and The Minetta Burger ($16.00) .. The Black Label Burger is by far the most famous of the two, made with the Black Label Blend of Dry Aged Beef from famed New York Butcher Pat La Freida .. Dry Aged Beef may be great for Steaks, such as the ones so famous at Peter Luger and Minetta Tavern, but we feel that this beef doesn’t translate so well to Burgers … We prefer the Minetta Burger. How bout you?

Cool Places to Eat in NEW YORK

Here are three “GREAT” places to go to eat in Downtown Manhattan;El Quijote at

the famed Chelsea Hotel

on West 23 rd Street for great Lobsters and Paella. The bar is

a great place to have a couple Great Cocktails as the ambiance
is Cool of Another Era Tacky. “You gotta Love IT!!”
Pearl Oyster Bar on Cornelia Street in The Village makes thee
BEST LOBSTER ROLLS in New York, even Maine. The
New England Clam Chowder is tasty as well.
Raoul’s for our money is the Coolest, Hippest, Best All Around French Bistro in New York.
The food is really good, Classic Bistro Fare. The ambiance is Cool as Hell and the Music they
play, is the Best in the City. Raoul’s is on Prince Street near Sullivan in Soho. “It’s Great!!!!”






MINETTA TAVERN, Macdougal Street at Minetta Lane, Greenwich Village, New York …    Without Question the Coolest Restaurant in Town … This great old Greenwich Village Bar / Restaurant was the In-Spot of Prize Fighters, Newsmen, Sports Fihures, and the Downtown Elite way back in the 30s & 40s when the affable Eddy Minetta rant the joint. For the past 30 years or so, Minetta Tavern was run quietly and devoid of any fanfare by a string of owner who never did very much with the place. The Master Restaurantuer KEITH McNALLY got his hands on the place, kept everything more-or-less the same (allof the wonderful old decor was intact). Keith spruced the place up a bit, hired a couple great chefs, lent his Magic Touch and the place has been packed ever since. A major New York Celebrity Haunt as all of Keith’s restaurants are, Minetta Tavern is the coolest place in town. Famed for its wonderful decor, massive Steaks done French Style, Marrow Bones, and Burgers, The Black Label Burger and the Minetta Burger .. Minetta Tavern can’t be beat.
