    According to food writer Josh Ozersky, it's the "best new-school burger in America...[it] synthesizes the best of old and new: specialty meat, squishy buns, intense seasoning, and cast-iron searing."

    Yes, you heard right, the burger is dope. They recommend it medium but I would go medium rare. Great crunchy exterior to the patty. Upgrade to the parm fries. You won't be disappointed.

    i like the small size of this restaurant, and the burger was indeed very good. i'd order a burger or a steak. the porcini bread pudding was remarkable. nice service, cozy, affordable, forgettable.

    off-menu pizza w. a super-crispy crust that's built in a cast-iron skillet-dough is put in the pan to cook w. toppings added as it goes; whole thing is quickly finished in an oven

    Saddle up to the bar or grab a quaint table at this EV gem. Don't even hesitate on the Brie appetizer or burger, both go down easy with their slightly spicy red sangria. Old school tunes top it off.

    Small menu but everything is cooked to perfection. Try the lentils and of course their signature burger is hands down my favorite in the city.

    Must get the Kale Ceasar Salad, Spiced Lentil Stew, Roasted Pumpkin (if u want sweet) and Crispy Salmon Main. Main dishes come w/2 sides of your choice. Porcini potatoes, fries, mushrooms, cous cous!

    Ground beef, steak trimmings, and deckle, then heated to medium rare perfection in a cast iron skillet -- it's like you're eating a tiny pseudo-steak covered in American and caramelized onions. Read more

    Yep, it lives up to the hype: get the burger. It's like the best backyard "America" burger you've ever had. White bun, well seasoned and juicy beef, gooey cheese, caramelized onions, and dark fries.

    Beef is the star of the show in the steak house burger. The thick patty is seasoned liberally & pan-seared for a sturdy crust, gushing with funky flavor that pools up in the loosely packed interior. Read more

    One small bite into the Steak House Burger and you will appreciate the delectable patty with the caramelized onions’ quality, subtle taste. Add a kick by ordering their spicy, homemade hot sauce.

    Awesome- Burger not on the menu- amazing. Also they said two beautiful words: complimentary dessert. And then they said "donut holes" coupled with "mashed potato" I don't know how but I loved it.

    Only tried the Michlada - very good. I hear that the burger is excellent (says a good friend of mine), that Entemanns is better than the sawdust donut they serve at brunch. Otherwise I will be back.

    Great small plates, in particular the chicken wings, kale salad and lentil dish. Had no reservation, but got a seat at the bar. You might want to reserve, in particular if more than 2 people.

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Pizza. "an off-menu pizza with a super-crispy crust that's built in a cast-iron skillet at an East Village restaurant otherwise known for its comfort-food classics."

    The burger is not on the menu, so just ask! Probably one of my favorite burgers I've tasted so far I. The city. Friendly people here too!

    The Brindle Room is a small fairly understated place but it delivers great food at even better value. Love their brunch - Shrimp & Grits and the Shakshuka are ace. Definitely recommended.

    Amazing brunch - great for groups - get the tasting menu. The tomato egg dish, french toast, yogurt w granola all fantastic

    The best cheeseburger in New York. They use dry aged steak scraps that give it a unique and complex flavor. The fried chicken sandwich with kale and pecorino is also a must-try.

    Wonderful burger, get it medium rare. You can taste all the umami from the dry aged blend of meat. Great beer selection but tight space so don't come with a massive party.

    First tried this burger at GoogaMooga. The Googa debacle (long lines) was worth it considering I was introduced to this burger. They don't always have it on menu for dinner so you may have to ask.

    Came here to try the steakhouse burger and it was really good, but it was on the smaller side and the bun was just one of those really cheap buns you can pick up at any grocery store.

    Get there at 8am on weekdays and 11am on weekends for their daily Coffee & Donuts – made from mashed potatoes with flavors changing daily.

    Great spot for pre Village East movie meal. The Pastas are all delicious and they have a great happy hour.

    One of the best burgers in the city, with a crust that puts all others to shame. The spaghetti and meatballs is also spectacular. As are the donuts.

    Get the dry-aged steak burger which arrives smothered with caramelized onions and a choice of cheddar, gruyere, or blue cheese.

    Burger is the freaking best. I don't eat cheese and worried it would make the burger less awesome; it did not. Fries are dark and crunchy. Eat every single one.

    I dream of the brindle room burger, it's the best in NYC. Order it just the way the chef recommends, and know that it's not on the menu!

    You think you want the fried chicken, but you really want the burger with american cheese, caramelized onions and fries, cooked medium. Sometimes you need to really listen to yourself.

    Burger is indeed tasty. Donuts are about half-size if not smaller; keep that in mind when making ordering decisions. Salted caramel's the best flavor.

    The burger is worth it. It's only $14 and comes with fries. Choice of beers are ok, nice selection of seasonals. Only two on drafts, which is disappointing. The rest are bottled or cans.

    The duck poutine and hamburger were amazing! The burger had a great char flavor that reminded me of grilled burgers at the beach.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say you should get the burger - its the kind of burger that you'll tell your grand-kids about someday.

    Believe the hype. The burger is simple but incredible. A litttttle on the small side, but still worth it. Fries were awesome too.

    Sebastian’s Steakhouse Burger, $15 The key is not the dry-aged beef. It’s chef Jeremy Spector’s much-imitated decision to treat this primo protein as a Greek-diner fry cook might.

    To die for: a Wonder City mashed potato doughnut topped with a scoop of ice cream, almond slices, caramel, and brûléed banana on the side.

    The burger was awesome .. perhaps better than back forty and black iron. I think I may need another to verify ... and the check came as I was writing ..10 flipping dollars.Best in EV. Period.

    One of the best burgers in NYC! It's comparable to Minetta Tavern's Black Label Burger except half the price.
