Avra Estiatorio- 141 East 48th Street

Avra Estiatorio’s lite Aegean fare boasts some of the best burgers in Midtown East. The Maryland Crab Cake Burger ($24.95) is perfect for those wanting to feel like they’re dining seaside, while the charcoal-grilled Sirloin Beef Burger ($18.50) with Roquefort cheese is a favorite among regulars. Both burgers come with an abundance of Greek oregano fries that cannot be missed.  Official site.

Invite Only- 63 Gansevoort Street

At the new Meatpacking hotspot, Invite Only, Executive Chef Jordan Andino prepares a Mash Burger ($18) that will crush the competition. The caramelized onion burger, meaning caramelized onions in the burger, is drizzled with a house made jalapeno queso. The burger also has pickled vegetables creating a crunchy barrier between meat and the toasted brioche bun.  Official site.
