    BRGR has a good veggie burger because of all the toppings. I like Royale, Shake Shack and Ear Inn as well. I am going to try Westville tonight based on the suggestion here! I will eventually post my top five on my blog if you care to check it out: http://meatmehalfway.com/

    Shake Shack
    Madison Ave and E 23rd St, New York, NY 10010

    157 Ave C, New York, NY 10009

    210 W 10th St, New York, NY 10014

    Ear Inn
    326 Spring St, New York, NY 10013

      I actually really like Cafe Orlin on St. Mark's. Their veggie burger is really tasty!

        LOVE the veggie burger at Organic Grill http://www.menupages.com/restaurantde... - and I'm a total carnivore.

        Love the veggie burger at Westville. I am a serious carnivore and even I will order this one. It's more like the consistency of a crab cake than your usual veggie patty. Really worth a try.

          Curly's Vegetarian Lunch on 14th st btw 1st and 2nd ave is my absolute favorite. I could eat the one with avocado and jack cheese every day.

            I forgot to mention that I prefer grilled veggie burgers to fried ones. I love them at Dojo but they are fried which is obviously not good for you.

              My fave burger-y veggie burgers are at Stand and Better Burger. Half King has the great brioche bun, but loses originality points because it's a Morningstar patty.

              My fave "creative" veggie burgers are at New York Burger Co. (chickpea burger) and Shake Shack (shroom burger).

                i really have to disagree with ny burger. the one i had there was rather tasteless, and the patty was crumbling and falling all over the place.

                  Really?? Could it have been a fluke? (Do they have different locations?) I dunno, I had it a few months ago and loved it.

                  I know its a chain so you might not think its that great: but Houston's is FABULOUS. I am a huge carnivore but I would eat their veggie burger anyday.

                      Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop has a great veggie take on the Big Mac called the Big Mack Daddy. Can be served with or without cheese (ie vegan option too).

                        This sounds strange but Bubby's has an EXCELLENT veggie burger. The one at brgr is okay too.

                          Hands down, BRGR has the best veggie burger. Made fresh daily. Located at 7th Ave just north of 26th St
