5 Napkin Burger NYC. Mmmm….juicy, meaty, burger goodness.


Sweet Potato Fries and Original 5 Napkin Burger

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!

  5. 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? 🙂

    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.

    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.

    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!
