Five Napkin Burger

Bistro in Upper West Side & Central Park

This inviting spot always draws a crowd. Juicy burgers are served in a vaguely upmarket brasserie setting with comfy leather booths, big glass windows and outdoor seating in warm weather. The signature burger is 10 ounces of meat smothered with Gruyère, caramelized onions and aioli, and served with hand-cut fries.

Burgers aside, there are loads of other options: fish tacos, goat's cheese and beet salads, and even sushi. Good beer and wine selections.
