A Savory 16 Sandwich
The Working Man's Friend
Flattened until the patties become a patchwork of crispy peaks and valleys, this burger melds with American cheese into a homey bun.
Food writers and bloggers have enshrined the hamburger at the establishment founded by Macedonian immigrant Louie Stamatkin in 1918 as the best in the city. Is it the utterly unadulterated, quality beef? The well-seasoned grill? Knowing that you'll fit right in whether you are wearing a suit or a uniform and work boots? Flattened on the griddle until the patties become a patchwork of crispy peaks and valleys, this burger melds with layers of creamy American cheese into a soft, homey bun—a combination as comforting as it gets. ($4.95)
