Hi all,
What bakeries in NYC do you think sell the best hamburger buns?

Thanks for your help,

      No need to pay bakery prices. Martin's potato rolls, purchased from the supermarket, are the best hambuger buns.

        Ditto on Martin's. I spoke with the chef/ owner of Stone Park in Brooklyn once and he was telling me about how they tested dozens of artisinal buns but kept coming back to Martin's potato rolls; they were the best of the best

          A 3rd for Martin's. The regular hamburger rolls are great. Their Big Martys are a bit larger and are topped with sesame seeds. They work perfectly for bigger burgers and sandwiches.

          I saw these awesome looking pretzel hamburger buns on diners, drive-ins and dives. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to buy in NYC or Nj? Thank you.
