Korzo Haus's glorious patty is wrapped in "a fine bread made according to an old Slovak family recipe" and then effing deep fried. It's also got applewood-smoked bacon, and Emmental cheese.

Brindle's cast-iron-charred patty sits on a white bread roll, is smothered with cheese and caramelized onions, and owes its earthy, steak-like flavor to a combination of aged prime beef trimmings & fatty rib-eye caps

This place has a great burger

La Birreria teamed up with Dogfish Head to create a garlic beer...that's actually delicious! It's a dark, roasty, chocolatey, earthy... lots other words ending in "y" porter with the garlic on "the nose and the finish".

Garlic... beer? It's actually fantastic...

Eben Freeman and Michael White's cocktail-heavy supper club The Butterfly has maybe the best patty melt ever: Dry-aged, steaky, white label meat topped with caramelized onions, and sandwiched between rye that's crisped only on the outside to achieve maximum goo factor with the American on top and the gruyere on bottom.

Multiple-time Burger Bash Champion, Lure Fishbar makes just a straight-up great cheeseburger with the works: lettuce, pickles, and special sauce on a brioche bun. An gigantic onion ring garnish never hurt anything either.

These are the 5 best burgers in New York

Greenpoint Beer Works fills Flatiron Hall's steins with brews like a "bright, floral, and coriander crisp" Blonde or the "silky and complex" Oatmeal Stout. Warning: beer descriptions do not double as pickup lines.

World-beating burgers from Keith Mcnally

Whitmans has a super legit Juicy Lucy (Minnesota's state cheeseburger) made with a short-rib blend, caramelized onion, spicy pickles, and an ooze-happy stuffing of pimento cheese.

Louro's Belly Goat Burger is made of goat, goat CHEESE, and pork belly.

Umami's Manly Burger is kind of like a bacon cheeseburger topped with onion rings, only much more aggressive. The cheese is beer cheddar processed in house, the bacon is actually bacon lardons (which lay somewhere in between pork belly and bacon), and the onion rings are battered in malt liquor -- suck it, all burgers not made with 40s.

A German beer garden and restaurant inspired by traditional biergartens of Cologne, Loreley serves 12 brews on tap in either liter or half-liter steins, plus eats like schnitzel, bratwurst, and Gegrilltes Hühnchensandwich (trying saying that... one time fast!).
