BEST BURGER ON THE UES?
I have looked through the posts about the best burger on the UES, but am looking for a traditional burger with really good fries. I like at 71&2nd and wouldnt mind if it delivers, but will happily walk 20 blocks for the best bite.
Please share WHERE you get your favorite burger, but just as important, WHY it is your favorite burger!!!
Thank you so much!
a few off the top of my head (why there would be burgers on top of my head, i'll never know)
gracie's coffeeshop on 86th and 1st - always cooked thw way i like em, and running with drippy oozy juiciness
buzina pop - kobe burger - yeah it costs a lot. but kobe burger... c'mon!
tbar on 3rd ave and 73rd. upscale attempt that doesnt know if it's a trendy pick-up bar or a steakhouse, but the burger tasted cood.
pj clarkes - a classic
My favorite is, I think, the one at Ottomanelli, up at Lexington and 93rd or so. Why - it is large, juicy, nice crust, has a great brioche like bun, cooked to the temperature you want, and it is $5.95. I think it is a better burger than PJ Clarke's, and the waffle fries are excellent.
For a smaller burger, I like the one at Square Meal - it is 5 oz, and comes with oven fries and home made catsup. It is $15.00.
