Tracing its origins to the bustling docks of early 19th century New York and evolving through iconic establishments, the hamburger has become a quintessential part of the city's food scene, leading us to curate this list of New York's best burgers, ranging from timeless classics to innovative new takes. From the world-famous dry-aged Emmy burger at Emily to the classic institution that is JG Melon, we have only included our favorites on this list. Katz's Deli, although also offering great burgers, is primarily known for their pastrami sandwiches, which anyone looking for something different should try.

As is custom with World of Mouth, all picks are based on recommendations from top chefs and food writers like Gaggan Anand and David P. Leja. So if you're on the hunt for the best burger in New York, any of these spots will guarantee a treat you won't forget soon.
