Though today's sweethearts exchange candies and flowers, historic couples sipped burgers through shared straws and drew ketchup hearts on their milkshakes. Return to a burgerier age with today’s Groupon to New York Burger Co.: $7 gets you $15 worth of burgers and all-American fare at either of the NYBC's Flatiron locations. Prove your love for hamburgers in a way that naming your first child Hamburger never could.
The New York Burger Co.'s top-quality ingredients and fresh, made-to-order treats will pique your hunger tooth and activate dormant burger glands at the base of your skull so that your jaw unhinges a little. Each thick, 6 oz. burger is made from pure Angus beef, and other sandwiches offer up all-natural chicken breast and lean ground turkey. The grill jockeys at Burger Co. are constructed from the finest meats and handle each burger patty and potato spear with care. You won’t find any freezer flakes on a Burger Co. patty, cardboard box shavings in the fries, nor menacing clown makeup smeared on the buns. The expert staff at New York Burger Co. char grills each burger to order and cuts the fries fresh daily. Burger Co. also makes its salads fresh and whips up its own specialty chilies, sauces, and dressings. A few sophisticated steps beyond the usual, plasticized fast-food world, Burger Co.'s spacious interiors recall classic, mid-century designs.
NYBC's menu serves up a wide range of tasty sandwiches. Go traditional with the New York cheeseburger (American, cheddar, Swiss, Monterey jack, or blue) ($7) and invite your heart-healthy MMA sparring partner to chomp a lean turkey burger ($6.50). Specialty burgers fly in flavors from across the planet, including the broad-shouldered Chicago burger ($8.75) with cherrywood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and Thousand Island sauce. Vegetarians can opt for the Mediterranean veggie burger ($7.00), a homemade chickpea and fresh herb patty with cucumber dill yogurt sauce on a whole-wheat bun. Fresh salads ($5.50–$10.75) and beef or turkey chili ($6.95 with your choice of two toppings) packed with all-natural ingredients make great appetizers or alternatives to hearty burgers. And don’t forget to complete your 1950s nostalgia trip with a thick milkshake or malt ($4.50).
GQ Magazine put New York Burger Company's onion rings in its top three, and AOL City named the burger one of the best in the city. The Gotham Palate, New York magazine, and Time Out New York each featured the handheld fare:
- As to New York Burger Company's staples, the place needn't change a thing. The burgers are made from all natural Angus beef and molded into thick, but not monster-sized patties and are grilled to request with delicious toppings. – The Gotham Palate
- The menu’s fancy but not too: Counter-service char-grilled beef, chicken, and veggie burgers come on brioche buns with homemade condiments, plum-tomato slices, and romaine lettuce, if you like, and the fries are cooked in soybean oil...The mid-century décor (Arne Jacobsen–ish chairs, George Nelson fabric on the banquettes) harks back to a more innocent, pre– Super Size Me time, when burgers were on the brink of becoming our national food. – Robin Raisfeld and Rob Patronite, New York
- I love this place!! The burgers are great and I love the fact they have everything (Toppings, grill, sandwich construction) out in plain site! [sic] Seems like they have nothing to hide. – jova1231, Citysearch
