This place is okay. I won’t say much because I’m not a burger person. I came here with family and they really enjoyed it. I got a California cheese burger which I ate half of it, but was over it.

Without any doubts, I consider that Five Napkin Burger is the best burger restaurant in Manhattan. A burger may cost 15$ but it is awesome. We stayed in New York for 15 days and we went to this restaurant twice. I recommend it so much...More

First encounter with this NY burger chain(?) did not leave us with a good impression. The burgers were skimpy and and not very tasty. The Ahi tuna alternative was a reasonable piece of tuna but not very inspiring. A big problem is the dry, dense...More

We sat for a lunch at Five Napkins in Hells Kitchen. Though the burgers are a bit expensive, they are worth the money. The waffles came with fresh strawberries. Service was excellent.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college

old-time neighborhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
