MANHATTAN – On its third official day in business in the neighborhood, 7th Street Burger is ready for the crush of Upper East Side customers that will soon be lining up for their famous no-frills smashed cheeseburgers that’ll hit the spot without hitting your wallet hard. For this burger shop, it all comes down to one thing: Simplicity.
Everything about 7th Street Burger is simple. Their new home on Second Avenue near East 83rd Street in Yorkville has just a simple storefront with their name on the window.
On the interior of the restaurant, a minimalist vibe. The counter to place your order is in the back, where you’ll also get a glimpse of burgers sizzling on the flattop grill as cooks work in the open kitchen. That’s where the magic happens.
There’s also plenty of space for customers and a stainless steel counter on right side of the shop, so you can inhale your burger and fries after a late night out.
7th Street Burger also has a simple menu, with just two main options: the cheeseburger and the Impossible cheeseburger. Sure, you can make it a double for a few extra bucks— but you won’t find any fancy toppings here.
Smashed on the grill and seasoned to perfection, 7th Street Burger’s patties are topped with American cheese, grilled onions, a pickle chip and their house sauce— all nestled on a grilled Martin’s potato roll.
Simple and simply mouth-watering.
A cheeseburger will set you back $6.50, add three dollars more for an extra patty. The Impossible cheeseburger— made with real Impossible meat— will set you back $8.00. Add an order of their perfectly golden fries for $3.50 more.
If you’re feeling adventurous, go off-menu and order the loaded fries. You’ll get a basket of french fries topped with two beef patties, American cheese, pickles and gilled onions, all smothered in house sauce.
Upper East Site has learned there’s even an off-menu vegan option where you get two Impossible patties over fries, topped with grilled onions and pickles– they recommend adding a little ketchup on top.
While you’re there, grab yourself a Mexican Coke— made with real sugar, not high fructose corn syrup— Sprite, Fanta or a bottle of water. Those are your only three options— and as we said, simple.
Don’t sleep on dessert either. 7th Street Burger has #baonanas pudding available in three flavors— original banana, cookies and cream and ube, a type of purple yam.
