Best Burgers in NYC
March 9, 2022
Ah yes, the burger…in many ways a very “New York” food. While the humble beef patty doesn’t share the same iconic status as the hot dog or the BEC, we still think it’s ubiquity deserves a ranking from your good ol’ friends at coolstuff.nyc. Sit back, grab some fries, and read our picks – all of which we have personally enjoyed!
For: the absolute best burger in the city. Order the classic cheeseburger, fries, a side of chili for dippers & a gin martini if ur feelin wild.

For: Anna B’s perfect burger (ahem - sliders). HiHi Room creates a nostalgic plate of sliders, paired best with their Meg-roni. Also seen in Cobble Hill Neighborhood Guide
For: a burger with melty melty cheese and a side of *perfect* cocktails (the head bartender invented the cosmo.) Also seen in BK Heights Neighborhood Guide
For: a burger that’s technically from Chicago (New York’s cleaner cousin with less things to do) but is absolutely top tier. Very cool location down an alley off Canal St.
For: burgers to revive you after drinking a little too much wine at a picnic in Fort Greene Park.

For: Brooklyn’s burger…complete with a substantial bun & the super shredded lettuce we all know and <3
For: burgers with a side of…oysters? Maybe if we’re lucky they will be able to take over a slice of Waverly Place again this summer during open streets.
Also seen in West Village Neighborhood Guide
For: the perfect summer-time park bench to-go burger, nestled inside of The Johnson’s.
For: the only vegetarian burger we’re actually into. Don’t forget to get some soft serve too! (Currently closed, but reopening very soon in a larger locale on Ave A)
For: a new twist on a classic. Try Bar Basic’s burg if you love the extra crunch of house pickled cabbage.
