Have you ever noticed how the same 20ish burgers end up on pretty much every "best burgers" list, even though there are literally zillions (okay, maybe not literally) of patties in NYC? Don't get us wrong, the burgs at Corner Bistro and Shake Shack and Minetta Tavern and Burger Joint totally deserve to be on there, but what about the titular ground beef sandwiches that've slipped through the cracks? Here's a list of the 11 best under-the-radar burgers in NYC, all of which you won't find on ANY of the "best of" lists from NY Mag, Time Out, Eater (and this), Zagat, or Village Voice.
The Restaurant: Red Rooster (click here for address and deets)
The Burger: The Rooster Burger
Available on their midnight brunch menu, this burger (partnered up with Parmesan fries... mmm...) is lovingly placed on a sesame seed bun adorned with L, T, bacon, Jarlsberg cheese, and bread and butter pickles.
