    Punch & Judy on Clinton: choice of lobster, pulled pork or pastrami on little brioche rolls - no mixing. $9 for three, more I think for the lobster.

      From TimeOutNY's burger issue from 2 years ago (yes, I saved it), sliders at the following:
      Bowlmor Lanes
      Pop Burger
      Sassy's Sliders
      Gallagher's Steak House

      I think all 6 are still open and serving.

        You can add Stanton Social to that list.

          I think Sassy's is on the Upper East Side now. There used to be one in the East Village--I will never forget that place. It gave me the worst GI disress of my life.

            Since White Castle is the model for all sliders I'd say your distress was a sign of authenticity. :-)

          The sliders are the "it" dish at Stanton Social on the LES. Little Owl has meatball sliders that are, in my opinion, nothing special.

            Gourmet sliders are a little bit beside the point; sliders are popular largely because they're anti-gourmet. That said, we like Sassy's and Stanton Social's, although you'll see very different crowds at each.

              i like the sliders at stanton social as well. i had some not that long ago at aspen, and i think they are so good! possibly my fave so far. they are bison sliders, served with smoked cheddar, bacon and their "gonzo" sauce. it's on a brioche bun topped with a cornichon. yummm!! you only get two to an order, though.

                  the gin mill on the upper west side makes 'em too, although their anything but gourmet.

                        I'll add Little Owl to the list.

                          And Shopsin's if they ever re-open.

                            Avoid Sassy's, that food is a poor representation of anything, there's certainly better sliders to be found in the city.

                            David Burke has them to go in his Bloomingdale's location but I ordered them once and they were done too rare for me even though I asked for medium and it was a bad experience so I haven't been back since.
