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.

    Very good burgers at Ottomanell's on Lexington @93rd. Also excellent cottage fries and alcohol.

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

          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!

            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.

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