    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.

            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 had one at 202 in Chelsea Market that was pretty great.

                      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.

                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
