i think we finally found it…

let the hunt for the best nyc burger be over, 

and come celebrate with us at blt burger.
seriously, we think it’s the best we’ve had in 
all our long years living in nyc 
{well, so far at least}.
coming in at a close second, corner bistro.
also, we don’t mind the shake shack, the burger joint or brgr.
however, we’re not recommending fanelli cafe or jackson hole.
also- we still haven’t had a bad burger at mcdonalds.
just sayin’. 
  1. Wonderful! I was wondering how long the search would last… I’d ask you to mail me one but I don’t think it would travel as well as the headband- which incidentally I adore!

    Have you tried BGR Burger in D.C. yet? My husband and I have been on a hunt for the best burger here too, and that place was the winner! It is delicious, to die for, yummy!!! It’s pretty close to the temple, so it’s a tradition for us to go after every session. Yum! You’ll have to try it next time you’re in the area.

    Mmm… now I know what I am craving for lunch…

    Naomi, thank you so much for sharing your joy & little bits of inspiration with us. I've been thinking about the things that inspire me (actually wrote a new post on that a little bit ago), and you are one of those people who always seem so spark inspiration!

    I saw you in Time Out Magazine this morning! Work girl!

  8. You gotta try “Stand” too, before you make your final decision! Haha. ;)
    Not only are the burgers incredible, it’s the best milkshake I’ve ever tasted – get the Toasted Marshmallow!

  14. You are so beautiful! We really miss you.

  15. Sounds delicious! I am looking forward to one day visiting NYC again {hopefully in the near future} so my husband and I can go to some of these wonderful restaurants you blog about. You should create your very own “Guide to New York”

  18. Martha

    Yeah! I’ll just have you know that I had this mad craving for a Big Mac the other night and just went and got one :)

    (My) husband and I did our version of the burger quest a few years back when we lived in NYC: we were on the hunt for the best veggie burger. The winner was the Garden Apartment Burger at Dizzy's, 8th Ave & 9th St in Brooklyn. If you're ever on the F train, you should check it out… they definitely have burgers of the beef variety. Love your blog – it brings back my sparkly memories of the city.

    You need to try STAND and RARE before you leave. Just saying.
