Oh, 5 Napkin Burger why have I been avoiding you for so long?
You keep calling me. You leave me little notes of affection. You try to lure me in with your sexy style. You hide behind corners when I turn around like some deranged stalker. You slip roofies into my beer and try to get me back to your place.
It finally happened. Your advances worked and I gave in. I tasted your desires and actually liked it.
Original 5 Napkin Burger – 10oz. custom ground beef, caramelized onions, gruyere cheese, rosemary aioli, soft white roll. Huge delicious burger! Cooked to perfection with a pinkness in the middle, and the gruyere cheese with rosemary aioli was an amazingly workable combination that just added to the ridiculously tastiness of it all. All the juicy goodness was soaked up by a large fluffy hamburger bun. Also, I was able to substitute sweet potato fries in place of regular fries. These too were just killer, with a nice light salty coating on them.
They have a pretty extensive beer and bourbon list too! I was pretty impressed by this. Enjoyed a pint of Ommegang Hennepin with my burger.
Even at around 11PM it was still jumping here, but was not crazy crowded. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. The music was pumping. The decor is Hell’s Kitchen cool. The crowd was mixed as related to the area. The food came out quick and hot. They have six locations so far (UWS, Hell’s Kitchen, Astoria, Boston, Miami, Union Square) to satisfy your burger cravings.
Now that I have tasted your juicy meat nectar I guess I will be sneaking into your window once in a while for a late night burger booty call. Just please stop calling and texting me you creeper!

You had me at 5 napkin burger (even though that thing looks bigger than me) but then you had to go and kill me with the Sweet Potato Fries? LOVE those things!
It was a terrific combo! Every once in a while I crave sweet potato fries!
rosemary aoili? why oh why do I have to eat Greek tonight? sometimes ya just want a burger. guess I’ll offer it up to environmental consciousness, after all, I’ll only need one napkin.
I love Greek food too! A nice Greek salad, some chicken souvlaki, and baklava. Oh look – it’s lunch time!
You make me drool! 😉
I seem to have that effect on women! 😉
That burger looked scrumptious!
It sure was! I’m sure you like a nice piece of juicy meat now and then! 😉
Great post, Phil. Did you hear about the link between beef and heart attacks? Before you buy the ring and meet the burger’s parents, check out the article in the Times a few weeks back. I’ve tried to include the link here twice but it keeps getting rejected. Is that you, or the comment software? 🙂
I’m not deleting it so it must be the software. Believe me, I have read all about it anyway. Still won’t stop me from enjoying an occasional burger. It’s all about moderation my friend. 🙂
My vote’s for those sweet potato fries.
I love them! Nice change from the normal fries.
Not sure I would eat that burger… but then I’d fold and do it. I always get a kick to see people talk about Ommegang, too, as I live 30 minutes from it and have watched it grow to how big it is now. They always have fun things going on up there.
Love Ommegang! I need to head up there to do a brewery tour this summer. Been a fan since they started out.
If you end up figuring when, let me know. If it’s a day when I’m free, I’d be more than happy to take you on the full Cooperstown Beverage Trail (three breweries, two wineries, one cider mill). It’s an incredible trail, some great beers and you get a glass at the end! Each stop also gives you something free!
Sounds great. Definitely sounds like a way to spend a weekend!
Oh My God!! now I HAVE to have a burger!! Gosh!
I seem to have that power over woman to suddenly crave large meat! 😉
I’m licking the screen!
For some reason I am oddly aroused! 😉
Delicious – not even lunchtime and I am now absolutely starving – luckily I ran this morning, so great big lunch here I come!
I bet you will blame my blog if you gain weight!
I have a post like this one. I linked it under my website since it won’t let me link it here. Your site thinks I’m a spammer. I forgot to ask how you found my blog.
Thanks for dropping by. You can always email the link to me so I could check it out. I think I found your blog from another blog you commented on or that we both follow. Glad I did as you are really funny!
I love sweet potato fries! The burger looks awesome too 🙂
Sweet potato fries if done right are a nice change from regular fries. Plus, nothing wrong with a good burger!
The sign of a really great burger is when you cost the restaurant more in paper napkins than you do in beef!
Love a good burger, Cheeseburger Bobby’s, Five Guys, and on and on and on!
That is very true! I’ll go through a pile of them while devouring a good burger. Nothing like a good messy burger!
I’m drooling over just the picture; I couldn’t imagine actually eating! Wait, yes I can!! Pack me up one of these burgers and ship it my way. And some of those sweet potato fries too! 😉
Thanks for dropping by! I’d pack you up one but I’d end up eating it first! Along with the fries. I have no shame.
I’ve walked past the Union Square location a lot – never been tempted to stop, but I think I will now!
The one I ate at was in Hell’s Kitchen. Give it a shot – you might like them.
Damn – I want one!
It has that ‘come over to the dark side – we have tasty burgers and fries’ allure to it 😀
Yes, it does! It’s brunch time in NYC so I just might go out and get one!
WOW! I just ate a burger and now I am depressed. My burger wasn’t even a one napkin burger 🙁
LOL! Maybe you need to plop three of them together to equal this one. Then call a cardiologist.
