Best Burger in New York

One by one they approached the counter at Zaitzeff, a storefront in New York’s financial district, and repeated the words like a mantra. Half-pound sirloin burger. Bacon. Cheddar.

None of the seven men, still in neckties from the workday, dared order a turkey burger ($8.50 on the chalkboard menu). Nobody got the sliders ($12.50 for three). Not one request for Kobe ($9.75 for a quarter-pounder, $15.50 for a half).

“If anybody didn’t order a half,” Brett Weiss told the beefy guy taking it all down on a restaurant pad, “make them a half-pound anyway.”
