This is the third location of the old-school NYC burger spot that started out on the Upper East Side, and it has a similar feel to the others, with green checkered tablecloths and various melon-related artwork on the walls. You’re here for a burger and some cottage fries - basically big, soft potato chips - and if you make it during the daily Happy Hour from 5-7pm, you can get both those things plus a Stella for $18.
J.G. Melon is permanently closed.

Frankel’s is a Jewish deli in the same vein as Russ & Daughters, but on its own level entirely.
Red Hook Tavern
Red Hook Tavern is from the people behind Hometown Bar-B-Que, and it’s a great spot to sit at the bar, drink wine, and eat an extremely good burger.
