Fantastic burger within Hell’s Kitchen. You need to be there soon or reserve as it is difficulty to get a table.

What would happen if we took the burger we loved and built a restaurant around it? Usually, it’s done the other way around: come up with an idea, create the menu, build the restaurant. Well, not this time! We had the burger – the original 5 Napkin Burger – 10oz of 100% all natural Angus chuck from Aspen Ridge, griddled to desired temperature, topped with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and rosemary aioli on a soft potato roll. This is the burger, Chef Andy’s burger. Then, and now, it remains our guide. We strive to elevate the burger experience to its top shelf – because you & your burger deserve better. While other “burger joints” serve their burgers in wax paper, or in a cardboard box, 5 Napkin Burger holds itself to a higher standard. Burgers this great deserve to be served stacked high on a real plate, at a table with a proper setting, & with a great glass of wine or a craft beer. A 5 Napkin Burger could never be eaten standing up. Knife & fork is optional – 5 Napkins required.
