Top 5 Burgers in New York City
Carnivore’s rejoice. Roxy Hotel presents a curated list of the Top 5 burgers in New York City.
P.J. Clarke’s – Nat King Cole proclaimed this bacon cheeseburger to be “The Cadillac of burgers.” The name has stuck and we are forever grateful. Established in 1884 and showing no signs of letting up, visit the original location on Third Ave for a piece of historic New York.
4 Charles Prime Rib – Pressed Snake River Farms Wagyu beef, American cheese, pickles, and “dijonnaise.” Get lost in the umami char of the meat and the crunchy tang of pickles and onions. Served with a a steak knife sticking out of the top of the bun setting the expectation for a truly memorable experience.
Minetta Tavern – Enjoying the Black Label Burger at Minetta Tavern is a New York tradition. The selection of prime dry-aged beef cuts is seasoned with Kosher salt and pepper and is basted in clarified butter throughout the cooking process. The caramelized onions are then heated in the beef fat left on the griddle. The end result is a juicy masterpiece.
Raoul’s – The quintessential old-school SoHo spot. The burger here is an amenity to be enjoyed only at the nine seat bar. One dozen are offered nightly, so get there early as they disappear quickly. Powered by an intriguing au poivre sauce, a separate au poivre mayonnaise, a sweet, brisket-heavy blend, and coated with cheese, watercress, and cornichons, you’ll be planning your next visit after the first bite.
Roxy Bar – Served on a silver platter, and rightfully so, The Roxy Burger is fit for royalty. Pat Lafrieda Beef Brisket blend, NY Cheddar, and charred radicchio slaw coalesce with a smoky house sauce to become one of New York’s best burger experiences. Indulge daily for lunch, weekend brunch or dinner at Roxy Bar.
