What's the second best burger in Chelsea/Flatiron?
Let's not debate the merits of Shake Shack. For this thread, let's concede that it's a good burger, perhaps the best in the neighborhood (some would say the best in the city, although I would not). But I think we also can concede that it's not worth waiting 45 minutes in line for.
So if I want a burger in the Chelsea/Flatiron area without the wait, where should I be going?
I would walk over to Molly's on 3rd avenue and 23rd street. Still my favorite buger, other than the Shake of course
I don't know if it's the "best" but in a burger crunch I happen to like the burgers at the NY Burger Company on 21st and 6th. I think there's another one on Park.
It might be here -
Metro Cafe and Wine Bar. Great burger. I've been there 3 times for lunch in the past 2 weeks (watching soccer) and gotten a burger each time. Chargrilled and juicy with great flavor. It comes on a thick bun that is just the right size for the patty.
Molly's burger is too big for my taste and doesn't have the flavor of this one. I do love Molly's for a pint, though.
