I love tuna burgers, but don't recall seeing one on a menu anywhere. Where can I find one?

      The best I've ever had were at Taylor's Automatic Refresher in S.F. Does anything compare in NY?

        Second Perry St! I had this off the lunch menu, so I'm not sure if its offered at dinner. Not only was it delicious, it was also huge! As only one course of their prix-fixe, this has to be one of the best deals in the city.

        I believe that Union Square Cafe is known for its tuna burger - haven't had it for years though.

          Village on W. 9th St. has a tuna burger on the cafe menu.

            Union Square Cafe has it on the lunch menu - very good, but not cheap ($21). A while back I heard you could also get it at the bar at dinner, but I don't know if that's true or not.

              I like the ones that I have had at Josie's a while back.

                I had a suprisingly good, albeit over priced (I remember $21) tuna burger at Odeon in Tribeca. It was a nice size, cooked rare, and came with a pile of very good french fries.

                Perry Street. So reasonable and delicious. Lunch only, I believe.

                  This is an older post, but last night I had a delicious tuna burger with guacamole at 202 on Ninth Ave. (odd, but pleasant setting in Nicole Farhi's clothing store). It comes with plantain chips, but I substituted fries. I used to like the Odeon's tuna burger, but it's very expensive and not as good as it used to be.

                      7 years later the OP probably found their tuna burger already....

                        Old post, but I like the tuna burger at Milos for lunch, good prix fixe lunch.
