Trying to crown a ‘best burger in NYC’ is bearly impossible, but one thing all the best burgers have in common is that they don’t need 20 toppings to taste good. Good flavorful beef is always the highlight, and add-ons aren’t necessary besides some melted cheese. One place that gets it right is Corner Bistro, where the focus is clearly on the food.
This place is as no-frills as it gets; small menu, plastic plates and utensils, and cash only. Not to mention a burger here doesn’t cost much more than an extra value meal at McDonald’s. The original location is in the West Village, and now there is an equally good outpost at 47-18 Vernon Blvd in Long Island City. Corner Bistro easily deserves a spot on every list of the top 10 burgers in NYC.
