According to us:

The Spotted Pig

This gastro pub is perfect for after-work drinks or to unwind after a long day of exploring the city. Around 5 o’clock the bar fills up and that’s when the good stuff happens. It’s really hard to find reservations here, however if you arrive early or during lunchtime you are likely to find a seat. The burger here comes with Roquefort cheese and French fries and the bread is soft but toasty. Don’t be surprised if you become addicted!!

314 W 11th St at Greenwich St (212-620-0393). Price: $17.


There’s three types of burgers here: the “Yankee” the “Piggie” and the “Frenchie.” The three of them are delicious in their unique way and prepared with the finest meat. DBGB is the more casual Daniel Bouloud restaurant and it is considered a hybrid between a French “brasserie” and an American pub.

Price $11-17

Minetta Tavern

This tavern isn’t your typical “burger joint” but more like the New York version of a French Bistrot. Its style is very “downtown chic” which makes it a perfect place to see and be seen. Its food is very good but the hamburger is outstanding. Price $17-$26

113 MacDougal Street New York, NY 10012-1201 (212) 475-3850
