Never have I been so moved as to write a review. This is a DAMN good burger! Just finished the Chicago - cheese, bacon, 1000 Island dressing - what a great combination. Not your usual 'cooked 3 hours ago' bacon & mass-produced burger patty. This was a treat. To all you complainers about price, suck it up -- you live in NYC. If you want a cheap burger, head over to Micky D's... that way the line will be shorter for me next time I head to NY Burger.

I really do not like this new trend of opening flashy, brightly lit, overly commercial restaurants that are dying to look like a successful chain. Why would they want to be associated with commercial, corporate food? NY Burger Company is very clean, very bright and hilariously overpriced. This is the skinniest $6.50 burger you're ever going to run across. The rolls were thick and soft; the lettuce and tomato were fresh, and the burger got lost in the mix. Couldn't even taste it. Look for a fingernail painting shop in their spot come fall.

This joint represents a good idea imperfectly executed. The good idea is serving a burger with no artificial ingredients. In practice, however, this results in the lightest "6 oz." burger I have ever encountered. All three of the sandwiches I tried here -- the Chicago burger, the turkey burger, and the Hollywood chicken sandwich -- seriously flunked the "heft to the hand" test. I have found that the only true correlation between the size of a portion and the extent to which the portion will satisfy my hunger is "heft to the hand." If a sandwich doesn't have some substantial mass, I will be hungry again in an hour. Sure enough, I was starving later in the evening after eating one of NY Burger's sandwiches. Adding insult to injury, one of their sandwiches WITHOUT fries and a drink will wind up costing you MORE THAN SEVEN BUCKS. For that kind of dough, I expect a filling portion -- and I sure don't expect to find dessicated bacon bits on the Chicago burger rather than the strips of Applewood bacon I was expecting. In short, I doubt this place will get much repeat business after customers find how little their money buys, with the exception of any stray yuppies on diets who saunter through the door.
