Highlights From New York City’s Burger Week
When it comes to burgers, the possibilities really are endless. This was certainly on display last week in New York City, where plenty of restaurants celebrated Burger Week by pulling out all the stops and offering some truly creative inventions. The folks at Delivery.com, whom these creations were designed especially for, decided to surprise us by having about a dozen of these burgers delivered to The Daily Meal’s offices.
These were some truly wild creations, running the gamut from relatively tame to downright ludicrous. There was the Juicy Turkey Burkey from David Burke, stuffed with Swiss cheese and mushrooms; the Nutty Hawaiian from Sidewalk Café, topped with pineapple, peanut butter, bacon, American cheese, sautéed onions, tomato and Peruvian huancaina sauce; Mikey’s Double Down, a double burger topped with corned beef and grilled onions with bacon and Cheddar cheese sandwiched between the patties; and the surprisingly balanced Popeye Burger from Big Daddy’s, topped with spinach artichoke dip and melted Cheddar. And, of course, there was a donut burger in the mix: this one, from Brooklyn’s Burger Bistro, sandwiched a burger, bacon, American cheese, and a fried egg in between two halves of a glazed donut. And the list goes on.
Click through to check out some of the craziest burgers that you’re likely to find in New York City. And if any really strike your fancy, don’t be surprised if these restaurants will whip one up especially for you, during Burger Week or not.
