The best burger in NYC right now is from the fairly new Black Shack over on Lex and 38th St. They serve 4 burgers now, including the new Steakhouse, wich is served with cream of spinach and fried, crispy onions on top I think? But the straigt up Black Shack Burger is my fav. You can tell they get their meat from a small farm, because it just tastes so beefy and delish. I think it beats both Shake Shack and Burger Joint.
Now I want one!
Man, reading this thread made me hungry. Had an Umami burger in Los Angeles about 6 months ago. It instantly became my favorite. It was amazing.
