NEW YORK CITY | When I was in Chicago a few years ago I enjoyed one of the best burgers I’d ever had in my life at Au Cheval. Needless to say I was very happy to learn that they’d just opened in NYC earlier this year.

The space is fantastic. Very dark and old world, with a sort of prohibition era speakeasy feel. Similar to the Chicago original but a bit less diner and a bit more polished. But… back to the burger, and I can confirm that it’s as good as ever.

Two four-ounce beef patties cooked medium, with a layer of Kraft American cheese in between and on top of each patty. After resting for a few minutes it’s put inside toasted buns along with dijonaise and house made pickles. To this you can add a fried egg, thick cut bacon, and an extra patty. 😍⁣

Simple and delicious, it’s easy to see why many consider the Au Cheval cheeseburger to be the best burger in the USA. I took a photo of my friend’s burger, because the bacon looks great and is delicious, but for me I’m all about the original with only the egg addition.

Of course, there’s a lot more here than just the burger. Think bone-in fried chicken drenched in a sweet General Tso’s-style sauce, potato hash with peppery duck heart gravy and egg, steak with foie gras, and a fried bologna sandwich. It’s all very rich and indulgent. This isn’t the place to visit for a salad.

The space gets very busy during dinner time, but if you have to wait for a table, there’s a nice bar downstairs where you can enjoy a drink and some great tunes while you wait.
