Jfood’s Top 10 Bar Burgers – Greenwich to New Haven #9 Prime 16

Yesterday the first of the Top-10 was published with old stand-by Louis Lunch grabbing spot #10, and today, a second New Haven favorite makes the list.

Over the last year I sampled over over 60 burgers in search of the best Bar Burgers and Best Restaurant Burgers. And since May is National Hamburger Month, I will countdown the best of the best from Greenwich to New Haven.

Each of these was sampled and enjoyed and not just a description from their website.

NUMBER 9…BL Prime 16

Prime 16 (New Haven) – Prime 16 served an excellent bar burger, 100% organic and humanely raised ground beef cooked to my requested medium-rare. Even though the meat was compressed, it was a large patty, delivered excellent flavor and was juicy throughout. There were two thin slices of bacon that added just a little saltiness and the soft brioche roll was the perfect choice to encase the patty and added a little sweetness. The russet fries were very good but I would recommend the sweet potato fries, which were excellent, some of the best I tried.

Jfood’s Top 10 Bar Burgers – Greenwich to New Haven – #10 Louis Lunch

Over the last year I sampled over over 60 burgers in search of the best Bar Burgers and Best Restaurant Burgers.

NUMBER 10…

Louis Lunch (New Haven) – This institution is still serving a great patty using its patented vertical flame grills from 1895. You can ONLY order cheese, onions or tomato, served on toasted bread. The beef was excellent, great flavor and nicely seasoned. The cheese was well melted and the toast held it together. The tomato and bread were not in the same league as the incredible meat, but the historical claustrophobic ambiance and its inclusion on everyone’s “Burger Bucket List” gave Louis the #10 slot.

Apologies for the poor photo. Impossible at the table with so much pushing and shoving.
