Best Lamb burger in NYC

rednyc Jul 21, 2008 09:19 AM

We've got a craving for a lamb burger....anyone have suggestions for a good place to get one?

    For 24-hr late-night lamb burger cravings, try l'Express. It comes with harissa.....order it medium-rare and add goat cheese for the ultimate experience.

      In Israel they had a hamburger chain like MacDonald's called Wimpy's( after the popeye character) they only served lamb burgers. Interesting that lamb burgers have made the manhattan scene

              there's a French-Senegalese place on 22nd between 6th and 7th that has a very tasty lamb burger- name escapes me right now. Les Ambassadors or something like that.

        How much do they cost these days in Manhattan? I want to smile about my savings every time I grill a delicious lamburger with havarti and mint sauce here in Florida..
        (I used to live on east 49th)

                Belcourt and Prune both have very good lamb burgers.

                  Hi KTinNYC,

                  You beat me to the two! Prune and Belcourt are the places that immediately came to mind when i saw lamb burgers.

                    BLT Burger's (6th ave between 11th &12th) tastes better than both Prune's & Belcourt's, although Belcourt has a lot more atmosphere and Prune's has more meat.

                    Prune's lamb burger is surprisingly flavor-challenged, considering how greasy and calorie-laden it must be.
