Had the 5napkin special burger and it was perfection!! Juicy and messy just like a good burger should be. Fries are hand-cut, moist and crispy outside. My niece had the Smores shake and said it was devine, right down to the huge toasted marshmallows on top. The one negative was that the waitress, I believe her name was Jamal was... More

I kept hearing about this amazing burger place in NYC so I decided to check it out. I couldn't have been more disappointed. Upon arrival, the two hostesses were in deep conversation with each other and had to wait for them to finish before they acknowledged us. There were three booths available. Two by the door and one towards the... More

Local New Yorker pointed us here when the Shake Shack line was too long. Great burgers, amazing fries and no wait. Funky industrial decor. The greens and grain salad with the turkey burger was delicious.

My son and I stopped in for dinner at 5 Napkin Burger and had, literally, the best burgers we have ever had. The meat is fantastic (medium rare was perfect) and the beer is ice cold. The service was also fantastic!

Went to 5 Napkin Burger on the recommendation of a friend. it did not disappoint. We were in the city for Hamilton and had dinner reservations for 5pm. We ran the gamut on our dinner choices; from the avocado hummus, split pea soup, beer, burger which was PERFECTLY cooked and chocolate shake I couldn't pick a favorite! The only thing... More

We were looking for a great burger place in NYC. It was good but not over the top. The pickles they serve you are an acquired taste. Burgers cooked to order and are big. Service was subpar our waiter kept forgetting about us. Long wait unless you have reservations.

The waitress was spot on when she said "Day Made!" This was literally the best burger I have ever had and on top of that it was gluten free (with a gluten free bun), just so juicy and my meat was cooked to perfection! I am a true burger fanatic so from the outside I was not blown away but... More

I had the guacamole ranch burger with pepper jack cheese and it was legitimately the best burger I've ever had. The sweet potato fries were incredible but I suggest sharing them with another person because they're a lot. This restaurant has a rustic aesthetic and it was really cool!! The service was great as well. One of the people I... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
