I consider myself a burger connoisseur so when I saw a new burger option on Seamless I had to try it. I'm now hooked. Friggin' amazing burger. Has that perfect funky, charred-y goodness. Haven't been to the actual restaurant -- just keep ordering the burger online. I'll have to supplement this review when I finally make it down for a visit. Ah...it is requiring me to rate the service and decor. There should be a N/A option. I'm going to give it 9s because, why not?

I tried the burger and found it to be underwhelming. The bun was unremarkable. The caramelized onion was soppy, adding little of its own vinegar tang which would have added a bright counterpoint. The patty's doneness was inconsistent. Mostly the meat could have benefited from some fresh herbs and a touch of fresh tomato sauce in the preparation. I'd recommend rosemary or thyme. Service was careless. They got both my toppings and doneness preferences incorrect. If you like crispy fries you might well be satisfied with the heaping portion but I could have done without the Heinz ketchup. I would have preferred a selection of flavored mayonnaise as an option. Finally, the sliced pickles was a nice addition but fresh lettuce and tomato was noticeably absent. I imagine cutting back on the patty portion to make room for a classic burger configuration would require little price adjustment. Paying a bit more attention to the patty shape to ensure an even doneness would also help. Overall, for a neighborhood joint, too much of a mom's kitchen experience and for a $13 burger not enough dining out flourishes; a restaurant is not just food, it's food and magic. A little more magic would encourage return visits. On a positive note, you'll be pleased with the portion sizes. The beef was top grade. The cider not being cloyingly sweet was an excellent palate cleanser. And while there is little elbow room the atmosphere is informal providing excellent opportunity for casual conversation.

Not only did the Gazpacho soup surpass my mother's, but the entire place was just down right cool. I loved hanging out there when I was in the city and since I frequently come to NY on business, I will for sure make this a new hang out. Whether dining alone or with friends it works either way. The spaghetti (which the chef prepared himself) as I watched from the bar.... was some of the best damn spaghetti I have ever experienced and I am an extremely picky eater. I asked him how it was so darn good and he replied, "I'm a professional." He takes professional to a new level. Check it out!

Had dinner there last night with a friend. Everything was amazing. Definitely recommend the oysters, the broccoli rabe and the penne pasta. The service was super friendly and helpful. Love the bartender, very sweet guy!

He pan-fried my burger in a seasoned cast-iron skillet, till char brown and juicy, assembled it in front of my eyes with a simple bun (soon to be Pain D’Avignon), creamy soft Stilton cheese, and earthy herb flavored caramelized onions. Perched in front of me with a generous bed of crispy hand-cut french fries, I wasted no time sampling this beautiful beast. The flavor was rich and powerful ! A mouth-watering succulence, mixed with full-bodied velvety taste of the Stilton, and slight tones of earthy herb and spice from the onions. The French-fries were perfect, crispy and salty. And to add a little” je nais se quoi” it’s also offered à cheval-with a fried egg. www.dmanburger.com
