Over the next couple weeks I’m going to highlight my favorite burger joints in New York City! If you want to follow around just search #BRJBURGER. Hit us up on Twitter (@byrobertjames) to let us know your favorite burger joint!
Located: Lower East Side- 131 Rivington st. btwn Norfolk and Suffolk NY, 212 260-4555
Owner: Keith McNally (also owns Odeon (in Tribeca), Cafe Luxembourg (Upper West Side), Lucky Strike, Nell’s, Pravda (SoHo), Balthazar (SoHo), Pastis (Meatpacking District), Morandi (West Village), Minetta Tavern (West Village), and Pulino’s (Lower East Side)
Vibe: Dim lights, loud music, lots of people (mostly single), great drinks and even a better burger. Great place to socialize.
Take out or in: Since it’s in between the shop (74 Orchard st.) and home and I normally have Lola with me I usually do take out. I like to enjoy this juicy burger on my couch!
Food: Burgers are great (medium rare) and cooked perfectly. The fries are delicious and they also substitute for salad if you’re feeling like having some greens.
