We ate in 5 Napkins on our first night in New York and it was a good place to start. The burgers are excellent with quality and varied toppings. The service was friendly and brisk. The place was buzzying and very lively. Very enjoyable.

We took a seat outside, watching people walking by. The Burgers are very good and with 10oz large. On a Tuesday night it was no Problemen to get a table.

This is one of our favorite spots in NYC. Their food is outstanding and you have to try the Smores shake! It is absolutely to die for.

I had the original 5 napkin burger. It was probably the best burger I have ever had. I really enjoyed it. The price was pretty standard for what I've seen in New York. Our waiter was very good as well.

You’ll need 5-10 napkins. Lots and lots of juice flowing. Not bad. Cute atmosphere and good service. Best burger over ever had? No, but it’s darn good for sure. Worth a stop

Visited this burger bar at the end of September 2017. The value of the burgers and drinks was fantastic and they were really good quality. Very tasty however they were a little on the 'rare' side - the server asked us if we wanted them...More

My husband and I visited for dinner, and he made the statement that this was "possibly the best burger I've ever had" - that's the highest compliment from a hunter/fisherman that cooks all his own meat to his exact liking. The burgers are juicy and...More

Unless something has changed recently they did not have a "printed" gluten free menu, but our waiter knew everything and went all the way to accommodate me. I do the Virgin diet (no gluten, no dairy, grass-fed beef, etc... More

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.
