I am on a no carb no sugar no nothing diet but this place has healthy substitutes for all. Nice atmosphere I eat here often very consistent. I thought it a little pricey at first but the quality is high enough to justify...forget shake shack!

Burgers were good but NYC rents make it a bit pricey. Quality was very good. I would go again. My kids loved it.

I think I'd rate this place 3.5 stars, but I'll round up to 4 since there's no half. Came here for a lunch with coworkers and entered to a packed house. Luckily, by the time it was our turn to put in our orders the place really cleared out and we were able to get one of the three tables... More

Really good burgers (especially the kobe burger), great sweet potato fries, really good salad (if you want to stay in the healthy side or have your patty on salad instead of a bun) and easy to pick up on your lunch break....

This burger place is near our hotel and their coffeeshop-like interiors are inviting enough to make us come in. Their burgers are available in 1/4 and 1/2 pounds, your choice of Sirloin or Kobe beef. We had Sirloin and paid around $11 for a quarter pound burger. Very expensive. It tastes great and is very clean tasting, without the typical... More

Burgers are tasty but pricey. Fries are very good and portion is huge one fries to share for two should suffice.

Great burgers here. 1/2 pounders can get a little unwieldy, so I'd recommend a 1/4 pounder. The fries are excellent as well.

Found this wondering around downtown. Its hidden away just from Fulton Street but is worth finding. A great inexpensive burger in New York. You basically choose your meat and amount, toppings and sides so you can have it however you want it. Worth a lunch visit if you're in the area.

This place caught my eye as I was passing and thought I would give it a try. The burger was ok but nothing to brag about and the French fries were crispy but had a dark golden brown color which usually is from the oil being used for a longer period of time. I don't think I will be going... More

The place is very small but cosy. The burgers are just great and the use of kobe meat is very nice and definitely worth a visits.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
