  1. Favorite places for a burger around here are Molly's on 3rd, Pete's Tavarn on Irving and Grand Saloon on 23rd street.

    1. try corner bistro in west village - corner of bleeker & west 4th.

      1. like corner bistro...not to be lazy but can anyone suggest something east or west of the park? I live at 15th and 5th. thanks
        ps. WILL NOT even consider mesa grill...hate it there or chat n chew (filthy)

          The newly-opened Stand is nearby. Haven't been yet.

            I went today for lunch. I had the "house" burger medium rare. It was juicy but a little loosely packed and fell apart a bit while I was eating it. Ordered the shoestring fries. They are too well done and taste like potato sticks. They should keep them in the fryer for a bit less. The service was very attentive. They don't have a liquor license yet. Considering they just openned I thought it was OK. I will give it a month and go back.

        2. Molly's on 3rd btwn 22nd and 23rd is your best bet

          1. Too bad for you that the Cedar Tavern closed down -- that place "haunted my dreams."

              Olde Towne Tavern is pretty solid.
