Fodor's Review

This perennially packed Hell's Kitchen burger place and brasserie has been a magnet for burger lovers since day one. Bottles of Maker's Mark line the sleek, alluringly lighted bar in the back, a collection of antique butcher's scales hangs on a tile wall near the kitchen, and meat hooks dangle from the ceiling between light fixtures. Though there are many menu distractions—deep-fried pickles and warm artichoke dip, to name a few—the main attractions are the juicy burgers, like the original 10-ounce chuck with a tangle of onions, Gruyère cheese, and rosemary aioli. There's a patty option for everyone, including a ground lamb kofta and an onion ring–topped ahi tuna burger. For dessert, have an überthick black-and-white malted milkshake.
