Looking for lunch after the Met

gwk222 Jan 20, 2012 06:27 AM

Heading to the Metropolitan Museum of Art early Saturday. Any place to get a good burger or pulled pork sandwich in area? We don't mind walking a bit and if there are some good beers to wash it all down that would be a fine incentive.

    That question comes up quite a bit. A search will show several threads. Here's one for example.

      When we were there last summer, we walked a few blocks east to Shake Shack on 86th. We were really glad we did! They had a nice selection of beer, although we went with shakes instead. Hard to find one as good as theirs.

        The New Amity on Madison (between 84th and 85th) is a classic New York Coffee Shop.

        Haven't been there in a few years but I remember the burgers being great!

          Untitled at the Whitney Museum a few blocks from the Met serves good burgers.

            If you don't mind walking to 3rd Ave, you could get great burgers (and beer) at JG Melon
