New York City, or The Big Apple, as it is commonly known, is the most populous city in the United States. It has a population of almost 9 million people, and is home to some of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. People living in any of the five boroughs of New York City generally have to travel to different areas of the city to work. At the core of New York City lies Manhattan, one of the most densely populated regions in the city. There are thousands of restaurants strewn throughout the city, serving some of the most delicious burgers and sandwiches that you will ever eat. The following are some of the best burgers that you can find in New York City.
Emily’s Burger is unlike any other that you will find in the city. Whereas most people first take a look at the ingredients before biting down on a burger, this tradition should not be followed with Emily’s Burger. Instead, you should enjoy it as a cohesive unit, as a singular offering to your taste buds consisting of melted cheddar cheese, dry-aged beef and their secret “Emmy Sauce.” Despite its small appearance, this burger is more than a mouthful, and will leave your taste buds completely sated.
Shake Shack has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of the leading burger chains in the country, and for good reason too. The ShackBurger offered at this restaurant is simply a joy to behold and to eat. A thin patty composed of ground beef that is crisp around the edges is placed between a freshly toasted potato bun and topped with lettuce and tomatoes. This is the type of burger that you can enjoy while sitting in a park or at home after a tiring day at work as you snuggle in front of the television.
Burger Joint’s burgers don’t seem exceptionally hard to make at home, but do not fall for its homely appearance. The company follows the simple formula of offering a handful of burger selections without going too deep into details. They offer the classic toppings along with an adequately-sized patty that won’t get messy as you bite down on it. The charred patty will leave a delicious aftertaste in your mouth that leaves you wanting more and more.
A classic Williamsburg burger joint, Diner has a menu that changes every night. However, the best thing at the joint remains constant: their burgers. A thick beef patty is placed inside a soft, squishy bun along with cheese and crisp lettuce. It is complemented with fries served on the side, making for an excellent meal.
For people who consider themselves burger purists and believe that toppings actually diminish the actual taste of the burger, Bar Sardine is the place to go. The burger is housed within a potato bun, along with smoked cheddar, shoestring potatoes, and a delicious, charred beef patty. It makes for a delightful burger and will leave your taste buds reeling after you take the first bite!
