1291 Third Avenue NYC
There’s something about this joint, the way it sits on the corner of 74th and 3rd as if it has been there forever, the way I can stand at the bar in the front for hours and how much I enjoy a hamburger there. Is it the best hamburger ever? No. In a city loaded with choices, this is one in the pack of the best and for me, one of my favorites. It’s almost like a patty melt and has a unique, lightly charred flavor. Maybe I am sentimental about having first eaten this burger so long ago. It just brings out my inner New Yorker to go there.
