Looking for lunch after the Met

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.

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

    1. 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.

      Shake Shack
      154 East 86th Street, New York, NY 10028

      1. 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!

        The New Amity Restaurant
        1134 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10028

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

          945 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10021

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