Zagat’s Best Burger is in Midtown

Zagat’s 2010 Guide is out today, and according to Grub Street the Burger Joint at the Parker Meridien (on 56th btw. 6+7th) bested the Shake Shack and last year’s winner, DuMont, for the best burger in New York City honors. Kind of surprising, but we’ll take it! [Grub Street]


  • Crap, I was hoping to go there soon. It’s busy enough without more accolades.

  • Not as good as Schnitzel but its okay!!! LOL Just dont bother ordering medium or rare, it always comes out well done anyway.

  • I have had a DuMont Burger… It is a good frickin burger.

  • Shake Shack….stop being sheeple people–shake shack sucks! Average at best! It should not be at the top of any list unless that list is most overhyped NY establishment!

    Shack Shack is good, but people act like it’s the second coming or something. How come nobody ever talks about Blue 9 Burger? I love that place!

  • Five Napkin Burger at 45th and 9th is the one for me.

    HollyDiver’s got it right. A medium rare Original Five Napkin Burger with the carmelized onions and drippy gruyere is the best I’ve had in NYC.

  • Burger Joint is only okay. I don’t get the hype or long lines. I’ve tried it and it isn’t anything must-have. It’s overpriced and not nearly as good as Five Guys. I enjoyed my burger at Ruby Tuesdays more.

    Shack Shack definitely has a more flavorful burger.
