The burger at New York’s The Spotted Pig, a restaurant that is widely responsible for launching the high-end gastropub trend, is a wonder. Chef April Bloomfield has created a half-pound behemoth of prime grilled beef, topped with a layer of creamy, stinky Roquefort, and sandwiched inside a brioche-style bun. It’s served alongside a mound of rosemary-scented shoestring fries, and is the kind of burger that will force you to close your eyes after taking the first bite and make sure all your dining companions know that they’re missing out. -Dan Myers

One Michelin star.
New York Habitat
This quaint little West Village gastropub is good for a casual lunch. If you're adventurous get the popular chicken liver toast, otherwise the burger and fries are mighty fine too.

Dine early-bird at the Spotted Pig; you won’t have to fight the crowds for a table and there’s no risk they’ll run out of the amazing ice cream, freshly made each day. - Inspector

One of my favorite places. -Jacqueline Laurita, Real Housewives of NJ

For a good value red, opt for Chateau de Peyregrandes' Faugères AOC (Languedoc). Faugères wines are full-bodied with herbal bouquets and mineral notes. Perfect for this gastropub's cuisine. agwine.com

Chef April Bloomfield holds her own and then some at New York's top gastropub. Arguably the best restaurant burger in New York is served here, and the gnudi needs no introduction. [Eater 38 Member]
Epicurious
Gastropubs are popping up everywhere, but the Spotted Pig is one of the best. Head down to this West Village hotspot for stellar gnudi, haddock chowder, and a couple of the hearty house ales.
CNN
CNN Eatocracy: Devils on Horseback, chicken liver & a burger with Roquefort are a few of its hearty offerings. A 2 hr wait is normal during peak hours, as is celeb-spotting in the witching hours.
Metromix
One of best places for a lauded char-grilled burger with Roquefort cheese. The wait is always a long one though.
How To Make It In America
Gastropubby goodness. You should be thrown out for ordering a salad here. If you can't do the massive burger, at least do a couple duck eggs. [BlackBook]

The best restaurant burger in NYC is served here, as anyone who has braved the two-hour wait for a table can tell you.

A must-stop whenever I am in NYC. Gnudi are killer, best burger, and on my last visit the peas were a revelation. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef
Anil P.
The burger topped with blue cheese and a good Irish stout. Then a nap.
