One year. One hundred burgers. A quest that started out as a hobby, became an obsession, and has slowly transformed into a lifestyle. How much burger is too much burger? If there is such a thing, we'll let you know.

5 Napkin Burger

The Meat: Pat LaFrieda chuck
The Cheese: Comte
The Bun: Brioche
Flip Tip: Try a milkshake!

A cousin of Nice Matin, the “Original Five Napkin Burger” was so popular it was spun off into its own restaurant. On their signature burger, juicy LaFrieda meat and fluffy brioche are complemented by the Five Napkin special treatment: tangy comte and delicious (especially coming from a non-onion eater) caramelized onions. The burger is rich and messy – the drippings of comte blend with the meat to create a flow of different, decadent juice – and yet it still manages to be aesthetically pleasing. With two locations in Manhattan and one in Astoria, Five Napkin is a consistent and accessible quick bite for times of burger need, always serving up some of the best burgers in town.
