best Brooklyn burger
First time Chowhound user and Brooklyn visitor coming in for a 48-hour wedding weekend. Looking for the best burger in Brooklyn. Any recommendations? Thanks much!
Welcome to Chowhound!
There have been lots of excellent recc. RE: This topic. You should type Brooklyn Burger in the search bar, upper right hand corner of this page. Just be aware of the dates of the postings. I haven't had one in quite some time, but I always enjoyed the Burgers at a Bay Ridge bar/restaurant called Skiinflints 7902 5TH Ave Phone: (718) 745-1116 . Brooklyn is a mecca for all sorts of amazing cuisines, so unless it has to be a burger, consider trying something different. ...
And have a great visit!
As Tay points out, this topic gets hounded here as often as any. The most recent, comprehensive and up-to-date thread can be found here:
Note that Donovan's, Horgan's, and Joe's BestBurger are all in Queens, but Brooklyn gets most of the attention throughout the rest of the discussion.
Or you could save yourself the trouble and just go to Dumont Burger (Williamsburg) and Stone Park Cafe (Park Slope - order from the bar menu). Two slightly different paths to heaven, but Dumont should cover your complexly savory, brioche-bunned, perfect-pickle fantasies, while Stone Park offers a masterful balance of light, sesame seeded control over fresh, crisp condiments and a buttery ground beef interior. Each of these burgers will run you between 10 and 12 bucks depending on your bacon + cheese inclinations. Beware (or rejoice at) the McDonald's-style fries at Stone Park.
I think this might link more directly with the article you are referring to. http://www.thefoodmaven.com/diary/arc...
I agree with him - my burger at Stone Park was nothing to write home about - it was decent, but I too like Bonnie's burgers better. The fries I had at Stone Park were so salty that they were almost inedible - and I like my food salty.
I recently had Dumont Burger - I think it was overdone, but I really liked the bun (I think it was ciabatta, not brioche) and enjoyed the burger a lot.
Now that I'm closer to Peter Luger's, hopefully I can give it a try...
