Brigitte Grisanti New York Food List of 2013 Best Burgers

  • Bar Burger:  Park Slope, 247 Fifth Ave., near Carroll St., Park Slope; 718-768-7675. The best new bar burger in town ($11, including one side).

  • Cocktail-Bar Burger:  The Beagle, 162 Ave. A, near 10th St.; 212-228-6900.  Well-crafted mixed drinks, the Beagle’s superb West Coast–style cheeseburger is all about balance and proportion. The nicely crusted patty, the brioche bun is buttered and grilled, and the pickles and Thousand Island dressing are made in-house ($15 including fried fingerlings).
  • Patty Melt: Parish Hall, 109A N. 3rd St., near Berry St., Williamsburg; 718-782-2602.  This magnificent burger blend is lamb bacon mingled with beef, and it’s rich and drippy and delicious. Its serve with grilled onions and good Welsh-style farmstead cheese on butter-griddled planks of rye from the neighborhood Polish bakery that could spark a patty-melt craze ($15 with salad or fries).

  • Grass-Fed Burger:  Reynard at 80 Wythe Ave., at N. 11th St., Williamsburg; 718-460-8004.  Unlike many lean, grass-fed burgers, this one is full of lots of juicy fat and topped, with  an optional wad of melty Gruyère for $16 including fries. 

  • Veggie Burger: Birdbath and the City Bakery – Multiple locations.  Liberated from the confines  of a bready bun, the chickpea-bulgur-pumpkin-seed puck is tucked into Hot Bread Kitchen’s parathalike m’smen, along with avocado, cilantro, and tomatillo sauce ($8.50).

  • Double Cheeseburger: Blue Collar.  160 Havemeyer St., near S. 2nd St., Williamsburg; 347-725-3837. One theory behind the success of the double is that two thin patties are better than one: the top effectively basting the bottom with its meaty drippings, thereby creating an ideal ratio of juicy beef to squishy bun ($6.25).

  • Deli Burger: Mile End Sandwich.  53 Bond St., near Bowery; 212-529-2990.  Here comes the Smoked-Meat Burger, a loosely packed beef-and-pastrami  patty well browned on the griddle and topped with pickle, onion, and a choice of Cheddar or Comté ($15).
